How do I generate a withdraw-exchange:// URI for testing?

This is due to the way the withdraw-exchange:// URI is being handled by the app. Most URIs prepare trigger a navigation action immediately, even before the Taler operation is finished, and the target view takes care of showing a loading screen. However, for withdraw-exchange:// URI, the app prepares the manual withdrawal in the home screen, and once it's done, it navigates to the manual withdrawal screen. This is currently necessary because the manual withdrawal view requires the amount to be passed as an argument.

However, the app shows a loading bar while preparing the manual withdrawal, so it shouldn't necessarily look like it's not working.

The problem is that:
a) The loading bar isn't very reliable, it sometimes spins even though nothing obvious is going on
b) The loading bar seems to indicate *background* activity, but the user scanning a QR code should be a *foreground* activity, so it's fine to show a blocking / "full-screen" loading indicator.

I address this in dev/ivan-avalos/uri-refac by moving all URI handling to a new fragment that shows a loading screen. This is a bit of a radical fix, but it also helps clean up MainActivity significantly. Now awaiting Torsten feedback.
