Enable 'Moblie Shell' of appium 1.7.2 on saucelab

our automation scripts is using 'Android shell' to remotely execute adb command.

This is a new feature introduced by appium 1.7.2. To enable it, a command line argument '--relaxed-security' must be added while appium starting.

Currently, it's not enabled on appium 17.2 of saucelab.

I hope it can be enabled on SauceLab.

    Will not be supported due to security reasons on the cloud devices.

    This would really help. Hopefully it can be implemented soon.
