[TIP] Python Testing Tools Taxonomy

Hi all,

Time for a new thread on this one. Following the discussion there I've
edited the GUI testing tools section and separated it into a
maintained and unmaintained section. The first section requires decent
documentation and indication of activity (i.e. commits or releases) in
the past two years. The latter has last activity dates and an
indication of documentation level. Only 4 tools made it into the first
one (out of 11), but I included Mark's pywinauto as the best
Windows-based candidate.

I deleted one tool, "Kiwi" entirely. This is a project which is very
much alive but I cannot find any evidence that it is, or ever was, a
test tool.

Please give me feedback on any errors I may have made, and let me know
if this is a good model to apply to the other sections.

Also, can we possibly take down the other two copies of this and/or
replace them with links to the wiki? (That's the original Cheesecake
one and Michael's half-done one). If I google it the new version is
the third hit of the three currently...
