Bug 1118107 - Convert ThreadSafeContext -> ExclusiveContext and remove PJS paths in object ops. (r=lth)

This directory contains tests imported from W3C test suites. In order to make it
as easy as possible to update these tests, no changes are made to the imported
files (names for scripted tests do get a test_ prefix to integrate with the test
runner, however). The scripts to update tests are provided.

  MIT License

* updateTestharness.py
  Used to update the above files.
  MPL

* parseManifest.py
  Imported from <https://bitbucket.org/ms2ger/test-runner>. Parses MANIFEST
  files (provided in the W3C repository) as documented at
  <https://bitbucket.org/ms2ger/test-runner/raw/tip/manifests.txt>.
  MIT License

* testharnessreport.js
  Glue between testharness.js and our Mochitest runner.
  MPL

* importTestsuite.py
  Imports a test suite from a remote repository. Takes one argument, a file in
  the format described under webapps.txt.
  Note: removes both source and destination directory before starting. Do not
        use with outstanding changes in either directory.
  MPL

* parseFailures.py
  Parses failures out of a mochitest log and writes out JSON files and Makefiles
  into the correct failures/ folder.
  The mochitest log should be produced by setting the 'dumpFailures' flag in
  testharnessreport.js; this will print out the encountered failures, marked
  by @ signs.
  MPL

* writeBuildFiles.py
  Helper functions to write out automatically generated build files.
  MPL

* Makefile.in
  Integration with our build system. Installs support files into /resources and
  includes a .mk file for each repository.
  MPL

* failures/
  Expected failures for tests in each repository.  Each test's failures, if
  any, are in a file with the same path and name with .json appended.  New
  expected fail files currently needed to be added manually to makefiles.

* html.mk / webapps.mk / ...
  Generated by importTestsuite.py from webapps.txt.
  Contains a list of the directories with tests. To be included in Makefile.in.

* html.txt / webapps.txt / ...
  Input to importTestsuite.py.
  Lists the URL of the repository and the destination directory (separated by a
  vertical bar), followed by a list of directories within the repository
  (separated by line feeds).

* html / webapps / ...
  Actual tests.

=====================================================================
Importing an additional directory from an already-imported repository
=====================================================================

Add a line to the relevant data file (e.g. webapps.txt), with the path to the
additional directory relative to the root of the remote repository, and then run
the importTestsuite.py script, passing the data file as its argument.


==========================
Importing a new test suite
==========================

Create a data file in the format documented above, and run the
importTestsuite.py script, passing the data file as its argument.
This will create a foo.mk file; include this file in dom/imptests/Makefile.in.

Add any necessary files in failures/.
