Bug Description

In unity8 we have some special requirements regarding how Dialogs/Popups should be required to rotate given we have several layers of rotation (phone default orientation, if rotation is fixed, etc).

At the moment we can not use PopupUtils.open because that makes the Dialogs/Popups be children of the root item of the scene and that does not work for us.

Would be nice to either have another parameter to PopupUtils.open so that you can specify the parent of the Dialog or some other way to do it.

  [ Sergio Cazzolato ]
  * This change is done to remove the dependencies with upstart in the tests.
    To start apps with env vars is gonna be used the launch_test_application
    method provided by autopilot in its test base class which is a wrapper for
    the ubuntu-app-launch tools (API). This change removes all the dependencies
    with upstart, so all the projects which are using the initctl api and
    fixtures will be impacted. An update in the documentation or in the blog is
    gonna be done also to communicate this change to the developers.

  [ Christian Dywan ]

  * Add MainWindow to Ubuntu.Components.Labs.
    Fixes LP: #1573118, LP: #1587431, LP: #1647415

  [ Albert Astals Cid ]
  * Labs is at 1.0.
  * You can't save the focus after the popup/dialog has been created, at that
    stage the dialog has focus already, you need to do it before creating it.
