[rfc] Moving Robocop tests to mobile/android/tests

We've kicked around moving the Robocop tests to mobile/android/tests,
and Bug 938994  tracks doing that. One reason to incur this churn is
to make building Fennec and all the tests more straightforward. Another
reason is that this simplifies the build system a little.
My vision for this is that we eventually make |mach build
mobile/android| the regular build step, and this builds updated tests.
This is in contrast to the current state of affairs, where the regular
build step is |mach build mobile/android/base|, which doesn't build
tests, followed (hopefully) by |mach build build/mobile/robocop|. Ugh.
Also, dependencies across these branches are pretty hairy.
I have patches that move Robocop to mobile/android/tests/browser/robocop
at , with a green try build, but it's going to bitrot *extremely*
quickly. It's only barely reviewable, but I've asked glandium to look
at the build system parts. If this is something we as a team are
positive-to-neutral about, I'd like to land this with cursory review and
follow-up to address issues.
