Bug 1528881 - Part 2: gfx: Remove some unused functions. r=jrmuizel clang's -Wmissing-prototypes option identifies global functions that can be made static (because they're only called from one compilation unit) or removed (if they're never called). CreateDefaultTarget() NS_HSL2RGB() widget/headless/HeadlessWidget.cpp:49:30 [-Wmissing-prototypes] no previous prototype for function 'CreateDefaultTarget' Differential Revision: https://phabricator.services.mozilla.com/D20261

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).
