Begin initialization of Review Board.

This sets up the logging, generates cache serial numbers, loads extensions, and sets up other aspects of Review Board. Once it has finished, it will fire the reviewboard.signals.initializing signal.

This must be called at some point before most features will work, but it will be called automatically in a standard install. If you are writing an extension or management command, you do not need to call this yourself.
