Convert existing Firefox strings to FTL

User Story

We need to develop scripts that will take care of transitioning DTD/Properties to FTL.

The conversion should be data-driven, so that tools can opt to execute the migration (and internal meta data) on their backend.

The conversions we execute should keep blame, but they don't need to replay history. We should, in particular for merge day, reorder and squash commits by the same author, to reduce the number of commits to what's necessary for blame.

Adding bugs 1280668, 1280677; we need the l10n conversions to land the actual code migrations.

Wouldn't blame still be available on removed files?
Yes, but it'd be hard to create metrics on the status quo on "who's contributing to this to which extent".

Morphing this bug into a tracker of migration infrastructure needed for all of Firefox.

The parts that block the menubar landing block bug 1291693 directly, too, but this bug doesn't.

Should this bug be closed, and dependencies cleaned up? I have the feeling a lot has been already done elsewhere.
