drupal-init-tools: quick and easy Drupal 8 setup

Drupal 8 is quite an improvement over previous versions of Drupal with regard to the reproducibility of a site from a minimal source repository.

The recommended way to set up a new Drupal 8 site is to use composer, and the most convenient way to do that is via drupal-composer/drupal-project, which brings in Drush and drupal-console as per-site dependencies; from there the site can be installed and managed.

However the fact that Drush and drupal-console are per-site dependencies poses a problem: they are not available until the site dependencies have been downloaded, this means that it's not really possible to add “bootstrapping” commands to them to make it easier to set up new projects.
