[webkit-dev] EWS guts about to change

We swapped out the guts of Tools/EWSTools/start-queue.sh a few weeks back.
 If you run an EWS bot and haven't restarted it manually in a while, now
would be a good time to.  start-queue.sh makes the EWS robust against python
changes, but when we change start-queue.sh bots require manual restarts.
 start-queue.sh is now runs a watchdog timer and is robust against EWS hangs
after the latest round of changes.
