Interactive mode basically turns all assert_screens into indefinite,halting, check_screens so a user can interactively add needles

What if a user wants a test to run through as far as it can, so they can retroactively needle, so they don't need to watch the test run closely for it's first run?

An "autoneedler" mode would be a confiugration option for a scenario which would modify all assert_screens to be check_screens so that openQA could do it's best to run through the test logic, which would then present a bunch of results in the dashboard which could be needled properly

This won't work for all scenarios, but could dramatically reduce the workload of setting up a new test scenario for basic runs in particular - interactive mode would take care of the more complex scenarios.
