Not yet but we are working on something along these lines as we speak.
Specifically, it will be a VM instead of a container (we don't have the
expertise to make things work reliably as a container) but there will
also be a setup script if you would like to try to install things in
a container. We should have something ready to try in about a week.

There is currently no integration but there is talk of writing a VSCode
plugin. I will ping the person interested (Joel).

P.S. While b2 is a natural abbreviation for build2, it's ambiguous with
the "Boost Build" build system which they also abbreviate as b2 (and get
very upset if anyone else tries to use this name ;-)). So we try to stick
to the full name (build2).
