 In order to test some of the AJAX functions, I need to be able to call
 them from within the unit testing framework. They invoke
 `WP_Ajax_Response::send()` which sends headers and cause the tests to
 fail. I've proposed a patch to this:


 This ticket is for the matching change to bootstrap.php to add the
 WP_DOING_TESTS constant.

 Please confirm this is acceptable and I'll commit this change, or let me
 know a preferred alternate approach and I'll revise the patches

 I considered and rejecting using existing constants such as DIR_TESTDATA
 and WP_TESTS_FORCE_KNOWN_BUGS - seemed better to me to have an explicit
 setting that reads clearly in the code.
