How can we improve Microsoft Azure Functions?

Support Linux + Python support for Azure functions

Please support python based Azure functions that run in a Linux Docker container.

Linux Docker containers are already supported so we are half of the way there and Python is working/supported on windows preview.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-functions/functions-create-function-linux-custom-image

Currently if you try to create a simple python based Azure function on Linux preview you get the error: HttpTriggerPy1: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

The use case here is being able to run "enterprise" python 2 environments with hard dependencies on Linux. I can verify python runs correctly and can send an example Dockerfile if needed.
