[Development] Marking BB10 unsupported

After discussing this with Bernd, who maintains the QNX platform together with
myself, we have decided to mark the BlackBerry 10 platform unsupported.

According to BlackBerry, they are still committed to Qt4 releases, but have no
plans for Qt5. With that in mind, and given the fact that we have limited
resources, maintaining the BB10 port becomes an unfeasible task, and we prefer
to focus on stock QNX, which remains unaffected by this announcement.

The plan is to keep the BB10 plugin around for now (just that we will no longer be
officially supporting it), but eventually we plan to remove it completely from
the Qt codebase in case no one looks after it. We will keep it around while it
still works, but there will be no committment on keeping it working.
