  right, that's what i assumed; i'm just saying that that is useful
information to know if, for example, the claim is that "podman uses
buildah for doing its builds," when, in fact, it is using some
(probably stripped down) internal version. definite potential for
confusion there if one is unaware of that.

I opened a PR for Buildah's README to make that explicit [1]. Thanks for pointing this out.
