remove JsonTree from cinder.lib #2092

I believe this is our last dependency on boost for toolsets that contain <filesystem> and <system> (almost all of them). Many of us have stopped using it already in favor of either using the already-shipped jsoncpp directly, or any other C++ json library of their choice.

There are some samples that use JsonTree still, I think we should update those to use jsoncpp. There's also a (not very good) unit test for it that we need to remove.

Should we move ci::JsonTree somewhere so that projects that are using it can continue to do so after updating cinder? Maybe someone would be up for hosting a cinderblock that contains ci::JsonTree?

I use it a lot, but removing dependency on boost is more important.
I could do a Cinder block for it, but not sure I would succeed...

I'm all for removing it. It's much easier to just use the jsoncpp library directly. Like you said, most of us have been doing that for years now. No use keeping code that makes things worse, instead of better.
