Bug 1484437: Add cbindgen to the searchfox jobs. r=froydnj Otherwise they'll fail to build. This is a very similar patch to the one for bug 1480392. Differential Revision: https://phabricator.services.mozilla.com/D3690

This directory contains common Python code.

The basic rule is that if Python code is cross-module (that's "module" in the
Mozilla meaning - as in "module ownership") and is MPL-compatible, it should
go here.

What should not go here:

* Vendored python modules (use third_party/python instead)
* Python that is not MPL-compatible (see other-licenses/)
* Python that has good reason to remain close to its "owning" (Mozilla)
  module (e.g. it is only being consumed from there).
