[QBS] Heads up: "Platforms" are gone

as indicated some weeks ago, we have now removed the platforms concept, 
which had become redundant with the introduction of profiles. This means 
that both the "qbs.platform" setting as well as the "qbs platforms" 
command have gone.
What does this mean for you?
a) Instead of "qbs platforms probe", you now say "qbs 
detect-toolchains". It works the same way, but creates profiles instead 
of platforms.
b) To share settings between profiles, use the new "baseProfile" 
setting, e.g. "qbs config profiles.qt.baseProfile gcc", where "gcc" 
could be a profile set up via "qbs detect-toolchain".

That should be all. If I've missed something, let me know.
