Remove SWFUpload

Development of SWFUpload stopped in 2010. It has been deprecated in core since 2011 when we switched to using Plupload in WordPress 3.3. Most of its functionality is now native in all browsers.

We've been maintaining it for over five years, but in the spirit of it's time to say "Goodbye!".

There are probably old plugins that still use SWFUpload. Will need to make a fallback so they don't completely fail. Thinking that a simple <input type="file" multiple ...> and a JS noop will be sufficient.
