Remove bit-rotten CppBackend.

This backend was supposed to generate C++ code which will re-construct
the LLVM IR passed as input. This seems to me to have very marginal
usefulness in the first place.

However, the code has never been updated to use IRBuilder, which makes
its current value negative -- people who look at the output may be
steered to use the *wrong* C++ APIs to construct IR.

Furthermore, it's generated code that doesn't compile since at least
2013.
