MDL-71264 behat: New feature covering all day/month/year date changes

Because of the order that dates and datetimes are filled by behat
sometimes there are some intermediate results that are impossible
and then the form (javascript) automatically reacts and fixes the
date, ultimate leading to a different date that the one we wanted
to set with Behat.

This is noticeable when switching between months (with some day
being the last day of the month) and the 2 months have a different
number of days. For example April date => March date (or the opposite).

This test covers all the critical changes (day, month and year),
back and forth. All times are Perth/Australia.

Scenario Outline: Verify that setting any date / datetime is possible
Given the following "courses" exist:
| fullname | shortname | format |
| Course 1 | C1 | topics |
And the following "activity" exist:
| activity | name | intro | course | idnumber |
| assign | Assignment 01 | Assign activity to test some dates | C1 | assign01 |
Given I am on the "C1" "Course" page logged in as "admin"
And I follow "Assignment 01"
And I navigate to "Edit settings" in current page administration
And I expand all fieldsets
And I set the field "Due date" to "<initial_date>"
And I set the field "Due date" to "<final_date>"
When I press "Save and display"
Then I should see "<date_result>" in the "Due date" "table_row"
