[Cubicweb] a script to save you time during development/project cleaning: autocommit the fixes of autopep8 so you don't have to do it by hand

Am in favor of choosing having a massive apply of this
autocommitautopep8 strategy. Maybe we need to select the cubes which
have a sufficient test coverage (or some other criteria) in case things
get broken.

Have you come across problems introduced by this approach or is it just
when you're stuck in the middle of an series ?

For the 2300 patches, it could indicate that we have to "deprecate" or
retire some projects that aren't used anywhere any more.
