[webkit-dev] Editing WPT tests in a WebKit checkout

I am working on a script [1] to easily export edits made to WPT tests from
a local WebKit checkout into GitHub.
The procedure would be something like:
1. Develop a WebKit patch
2. As part of step 1, update/create WPT tests and test them in WebKit
3. Export WPT-related changes to a WPT GitHub fork and/or PR to W3C WPT
repository using the script

This allows authoring WPT tests and WebKit patch at the same time.
This removes the annoying steps of manually copying WebKit changes to an
external WPT checkout.

At that point, one can wait for WPT PR to land or start uploading changes
to bugzilla in parallel.
The usual WebKit review process will happen with the possibility to merge
the corresponding WPT PR when related WebKit patch is r+ed.
Changes to WPT tests should be committed in WebKit trunk when already
merged to W3C WPT.

There are some benefits of doing both PR and bugzilla at the same time.
It allows for instance validating stability of test, style of test and
results on other browsers through WPT GitHub infrastructure.

Any feedback welcome, here or in [1].
