Support disableWindowAnimation capability

Animations are known to make tests more flaky and slower to execute.

In some cases it can even completely block the automation.

Since appium 1.9.1 the "disableWindowAnimation" capability is available on Android for UiAutomator and UiAutomator2. I have tested it locally and it's truly amazing. It would be great if that was supported on SauceLabs as well !

    Hi Kevin, I got a chance to discuss the feature request with my team. We should be able to support this feature around mid December. Will that work for you?
