gotip: add new command to run latest master build

This command makes it even easier for anyone with a working go compiler
(and git) to test the latest master. This should be particularly handy
when asking users to verify fixes that landed on tip.

gotip manages the git repository, tolerates upstream force pushes, and
makes an attempt not to wipe away local changes in case the user did
work in it.
