Removal of apps/scenebuilder from OpenJFX repo

OK, this still comes a bit as a surprise as the source code has been kept in the repo and was not just provided as a ZIP file.

I'm currently working on a tool based on the SceneBuilder Kit. I needed to work on the code a bit and was planning to donate the code back to OpenJFX once released, as I was under the impression OpenJFX would serve as the master / upstream-repo for all SceneBuilder forks. I was also under the impression that OpenJFX at least would make sure the code works with any new JDK / JavaFX version and hoped it would get support for new controls, if any were added to JavaFX.
