[webkit-dev] Moving WTF out of JavaScriptCore

We're ready to complete the move.

https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=80911 should land later this
evening, moving JavaScriptCore/wtf/Platform.h to Source/WTF/Platform.h

Tomorrow (Weds) I will move a .cpp file in the same way.

Thursday, I will move all the rest of the WTF files.  I will also
update svn-apply so that in-flight patches should transparently patch
the right files post-move.

Let me know if you have questions or concerns.
