[Dev] the fate of views/demo and the CPIATestView

The last time I looked into why you can't switch views, it was because 
of bugs introduced in blocks (bug #3869), e.g. some blocks don't delete 
themselves and others don't respond to the required events. Changing 
views is a great way to track down bugs in blocks, and now we can easily 
add switching views to our automated tests using CPIA script.

I'm all for updating CPIATestView to something else, and in the process 
remove deadwood. Having another view is a great way to test CPIA and our 
only chance of ever making CPIA a useful platform.
