Xpra: Ticket #2118: dummy video encoder for testing

This encoder will just produce blank frames and consume no CPU. Useful for testing, this will not be enabled by default.

Done in r21457 for x264.

To use it:

We still use the x264 encoder, but it quickly figures out that there is nothing to compress and returns <1KB compressed data.

Things that differ from a real software / hardware encoder, and things we could do to improve things:

@max: please pass it on for server load testing to see if this makes enough of a difference to the maximum rated user density of your appliances.
