Add git-send-bugzilla and git-send-pasteboard to WebKitTools/Scripts

These are two common tools which WebKIt git users use.  We should add them to our Scripts directory so that we can more easily continue to make improvements to them instead of depending on Alp to do so.

Bah!  They're GPL.  So we can't add them to WebKitTools.  Sometimes I really hate licenses.  I guess we'll just have to re-write them in python.

If we're going to land these sorts of scripts I would suggest leaving "git" out of their names.  There's nothing inherently specific to git about them and, like our other scripts, it would be best that they support both Subversion and Git.

I wholeheartedly agree.  Eventually the scripts need to support all our supported SCM systems.  I also think it would be OK to land git-specific scripts for the time being.  In this case though we can't land these anyway due to GPL usage. :(  At least that's my understanding of our license restrictions.

Btw, these scripts came from http://git.ndesk.org/?p=git-porcelains;a=summary
which is mentioned at http://trac.webkit.org/wiki/UsingGitWithWebKit
