Gaaa.  I don't know where the heck that function came from.  *grin*  Let

#########################################################
def buy_containers(stock, weekly_quota, container):
    return roundup(need(stock, weekly_quota) / container)
#########################################################

Sorry; my eyes must have been wandering when I was writing that code.
