[QA] Switching dockerfiles' run.sh to Python?

The run.sh entrypoints we have for CI dockerfiles are starting to get
more and more complex, and generally I feel uncomfortable working with
bash/shell scripting so much. You always have to add the right "set
-abcd" command first, etc.

What would people think about transitioning those to use Python or some
other real scripting language? We'd need to add python3 to the base
image, but I think a slightly larger image size is worth the increased
developer happiness and sanity.
