[request] remove flattr from jolla store

please remove flattr support from the jolla store!

reasons: 1. the money made through it is probably minimal 2. flattr is in decline now for a long time - user base is shrinking - this chance would only affect few people

now the biggest reason: 3. today eyeo (the company behind adblock plus) bought flattr. eyeo has not been convicted yet for their business model / business practice, but it is definitely morally condemnable.

i think jolla should not support this company. as much as it hurts to lose the only monetary system supported so far, at least maybe jolla will finally put some effort into creating a proper payment system, when they dont have the excuse anymore of "already having flattr support"
