tests: add as little code as possible in __init__.py

kallithea/tests/__init__.py contains quite a lot of code, including the test
base class TestController. This in itself may be considered bad practice.

Specifically, this poses a problem when using pytest 3.0+, in which asserts
in some files are not automatically rewritten to give improved assert
output. That problem can be fixed by explicitly registering such files for
assertion rewriting, but that register call should be executed _before_ said
files are imported. I.e. if the register call is in
kallithea/tests/__init__.py, assert calls in __init__.py itself can not be

Since the TestController base class does effectively contain asserts, and we
do not want to execute the register call from somewhere outside the
kallithea/tests directory, we need to move the TestController class to
another file (kallithea/tests/base.py). The import of that file then needs
to happen _after_ executing the register call.

While not strictly necessary to fix the mentioned pytest problem, we take
the opportunity to fully clean __init__.py and move everything possible to
the new kallithea/tests/base.py. While doing so, unnecessary imports are
removed, and imports are ordered alphabetically. Explicit imports of symbols
from modules that were already imported as a whole, are removed in favor of
fully qualifying the references (e.g. tempfile._RandomNameSequence).

Would you have any objections to dropping this and just use kallithea.tests.base where it is needed?

Import * in general is one thing, but having it in a module definition can make it even harder to figure out what is going on.
