WinRT: removed Windows 8.0 from build-bot + NuGet package creation sc…

…ripts

According to Steam's OS stats, Windows 8.0 use is pretty much nil.  Further,
Microsoft hasn't support Windows 8.0 development in any of their
actively-updated toolchains, and setting it up can be a pain.

In theory, SDL2 still supports Windows 8.0, however building of Windows 8.0
.dlls is no longer the default, if and when using the 'winrtbuild.*' scripts.
The MSVC 2012 project files for building Windows 8.0 dlls remain, though,
for the time being.
