[webkit-dev] WebKitTools is changing to Tools

I suspect there will be a lot of follow-on cleanup.  I don't plan to
be hacking much that evening, but it would be possible.

grep -l -r WebKitTools * | grep -v pyc | grep -v ChangeLog

Shows that at least 65 files in svn.webkit.org will need an update.

I expect all of the queues.webkit.org bots will need restarts.  As
well as possibly build.webkit.org bots as well.

So that means at least the following people will need to perform restarts:
- me (cq nodes, and ews)
- Adam Barth (cq nodes, and ews)
- Bill Siegrist (build.webkit.org)
- Lucas Forschler (win ews nodes)
- Lucas De Marchi (EFL ews)
- Whoever runs the Qt ews

I don't think the build slaves will need to be restarted, right Bill?

I'm all for the change, but ideally we should come up with a list of
who all will be affected (that may just be the list above?)

Could we add a symlink before then?  Then it would be easy for most of
those restarts to happen before the switch date.
