Scripts for installing Nix

Various people around the web have rolled their own scripts for
installing nix that go beyond the limitations of the recommended
install script (curl | sh). For
example, there's a need for scripts to install nix in multi-user mode
when running it on top of another distro.

proof. However, as a sanity check, the included Dockerfile does make
sure that a given release of nix builds in a clean environment.
