Since we're talking about toolbox, is there a way to get rid of or change
the hexagon in the prompt after you enter a toolbox?
My google-fu failed me on that one.
That being said, I'm having way too much fun making custom toolbox images
for the devs at my workplace.
It's a pretty big hit here. Huge props to the devs.

You have understood it correctly. With Toolbox, your data and user
config is shared through mounting the home directory.
Toolbox may be useful if you have two projects that need different
versions of the same tools, or otherwise require conflicting toolchains.
Or if you need different operating system releases for different
projects. Or if you have just a single project, but want to keep it in
specified release, independently of upgrading the base operating system.
I have used Toolbox to test that Fedora package updates work correctly
in Rawhide and all active releases.
