Abc Assembler Tests

It is possible to write tests using the abc assembler.  The assembler code can be found in /utils/abcasm.  Tests can be found in /test/acceptance/abcasm and end with the .abs extension.  The tests are run using the same runtests.py script that is used for the actionscript tests.  

When run, the assembler tests include the abcasm/abs_helper.as file which defines the following functions:

START(Summary:String):void - Start a new test section described by Summary
END():void - Test section finished
COMPARE_STRICTEQ(name:String, expected:*, actual:*):void - Compare the results of a testcase where name is the testcase name
COMPARE_TYPEERROR(name:String, expected:*, actual:*):void - Special function for comparing TypeErrors (RuntimeErrors) - Will only compare the 
    first 22 chars of expected and actual so that test can be run in Release and ReleaseDebugger configurations.
COMPARE_NUMBEREQ(name:String, expected:*, actual:*, fractionDigits:int=-1):void - Compare 2 Numbers up to FractionDigits
      This is to be used for high precision numbers that may vary slightly due to platform differences.
