As long as all of the tests we want to run keep running there's no reason to keep
TestRunner - it was just a way to run all of the same tests we ran before w/o
relying upon internal MS infrastructure.

I'm not sure how many of the DLR tests we'll still want to run but I imagine we can
just wrap them in unittest and have it run the EXEs.
