Revert "Qbs: Add new 'extra' generator for qbs project files"
This reverts commit f85db2f32358e6de921aba7d1cb8ecb81da934c0.
Discussion by the QtCreator community at
raises concerns about this particular approach to working with CMake
projects using QtCreator. Also, the functionality and design of the
QBS extra generator was never discussed on the CMake mailing list or
with QtCreator developers. There may be better ways to make the two
