This is intended to address #37, and to make work on the clean and load functions easier.

Calling downloadcalaccessrawdata --use-test-data will run the clean and load steps using sampled versions of the TSVs, which are included in example/test-data.

You can generate new sampled test data (assuming you already have the full data set downloaded), by running createsampledrawdata. Optionally, you can specify the number of lines to include from each file with createsampledrawdata --sample-rows=3000. Sampled rows are taken from across the files.

Eventually, a sampling mechanism will probably need to account for relationships inside the data. This version does not do that.

First pass at management command to create sampled raw data
To create sampled data, you need to have already the raw data file
downloaded and unzipped (with the data files sitting in data/tsv).

Run ` createsampledrawdata` to create sampled TSV data files in

FIXME: There's currently no way to use these files once they are generated.
Use test-data dir for sampled data. Add `--use-test-data` to download
Sampled data now lives in `example/test-data/` instead of just a
subdirectory on `example/data` (or wherever your data dir is).

To clean and load using this sampled data, run: downloadcalaccessrawdata --use-test-data

This automatically skips the download, unzip, prep and clear steps.
Add sampled data in `example/test-data`
This adds 7.2MB of TSV files, sampled from the original Cal Access data. It
is intended to address #37, which asks for sample data for unit tests.

Your incentive to return to #NICAR15: There's a t-shirt with your name on it. Thanks!
