(minor breaking change in preprocessor -- announcement in tech news 2 weeks

relevant gerrit patches and phab tickets. Parsoid can now handle the
mw-parser-output <div> core change -- by requesting the api to not wrap
output of action=parse. The ParsoidBatchAPI change to do this is part of
1.30.0-wmf.2 and needs to ride the m/w train with the corresponding core
