Use of Zeitgeist is Not Useful

Bug Description

There is currently code in ubuntuone-syncdaemon to log certain things into zeitgeist. This was done as a hopeful measure for doing a visual display of activity in the future. However, no UI has been developed for viewing such activity, and we cannot use zeitgeist for this on Windows or OSX; for which we would need to re-implement this logging in some other manner.

I think it's best for us to remove this code for now, as we aren't really using it as it was intended, and to avoid needing to deal with the extra maintenance work for it, should any problems arise there.
