Bug 1710963 - Update jpeg-xl to 30ea86ab4c1f1b98c21967a2e3d72a51fe77e454 r=saschanaz Differential Revision: https://phabricator.services.mozilla.com/D115036

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).
