FTR I agree with this approach for the vanilla `jenkins/evergreen`
image: having a single, ready-to-run image trumps other
considerations. A `docker-run` command can in fact be _easier_ than
the traditional Jenkins installation experience because you do not
need to even download a WAR and figure out where to put it, install a
compatible JRE, etc.; or deal with native package management issues
such as version conflicts. We are closer to the old JNLP “Run Now!”

If we have distinct packagings for more sophisticated environments, as
I recommended earlier, then we can define those packagings in a way
that more naturally fits those frameworks, for example by keeping the
supervisor and Evergreen client in distinct containers in a pod.
