[rfc] Intent to build Firefox for Android front-end with Gradle

Hey all.

The Android front-end met today and figured out how to approach Project
Building-With-Gradle-Everywhere:

Step 1 – assigned to liuche: get `--with-gradle` working [1]. Both ahunt &
liuche tried this in the past and it broke during the packaging step so
we'll have to fix this before we begin.

Step 2a – mcomella:

> * set up Task Cluster jobs for building --with-gradle and without gradle.
>

 Step 2b (concurrent with 2a) – liuche:

> * test that single locale l10n repacks work locally as much as possible
>

Step 3 – we'll talk to QA once the previous steps are complete:

> * manually test upgrades across the different build configurations.
>

Step 4 – we'll also figure this out when we get here:

> * flip the switch and watch for fallout!
>

fwiw, I found the existing meta bug [2] with some other open issues (that
we should probably investigate) – let's use that to track our progress.

To gradle and beyond!
