AMD version needlessly requiring jQuery (not a hard dependency) #531

The AMD version of Marionette requires jQuery, however this is not a hard dependency of Backbone. Backbone does not require jQuery, rather it just expects something of the type in the root context..

@derickbailey, would you be considering to take out this require? You already have Marionette.$ = Backbone.$ so the required $ is not actually being used anywhere by the looks of it.

i dropped the jquery dependency from the package.config... taking it out of the amd build is probably smart, too, since we're now pulling out of Backbone.$

pulled the requirement of jQuery out of the AMD version, too. v1.0.1 has this change
