Drop qtdeclarative5-qtaudioengine-plugin from ubuntu-sdk.

Description of the change

Drop qtdeclarative5-qtaudioengine-plugin from ubuntu-sdk.

qtdeclarative5-qtaudioengine-plugin is problematic. It's a part of qtmultimedia, which wants to be in main. But the qtaudioengine plugin requires OpenAL, which pulls in all sorts of dependencies and would be a pain to promote to main.

The only consumer of the audioengine plugin is ubuntu-sdk's recommendation. If we dropped this recommendation, we could drop the plugin from the archive and promote qtmultimedia easily.

However, I don't know if we actually really do want the QtAudioEngine Qml plugin to be a part of the SDK. Can I get confirmation from someone that knows?

Qt AudioEngine can be freely at least temporarily dropped from the SDK contents. It's not currently used by applications as far as I know, but it will be probably a wanted item for some of the game developers. I think getting OpenAL into mains should be a 14.04 goal.

OK, based on your approval, I've pushed a version of this into trusty. This branch is obsolete, as it's targeting saucy.

At a later date, if we really want QtAudioEngine, we can revisit the issue.
