[Feature Request] Build args support in Docker container actions

Unless I missed it, it does not seem possible today to specify Docker build arguments (i.e. arguments passed when building an action's container.

 

Being able to specify a "build-args" section in an action metadata file would be nice.

 

Potential scenario: specify the tag of base image with a variable (whose value would be defined in the action metadata file and potentially controlled by inputs or environment variables).

Yes, PLEASE! This is a blocker for something I want to do in an action, and it's tough to  find a non-hacky feeling solution.
