thanks to all those that moved off legacy storage.

i'm ok with removing it. the amount of questions i've fielded related to
Ceilometer API has dropped over the year we've officially deprecated
it. more importantly, we've had arguably no non-trivial patches to
improve this legacy code for over 2 years so it's probably best to
remove it so any new users don't read an old doc and attempt to install
i just checked docs and the install guide docs back to newton already
tell people to use Gnocchi or something else.
tl;dr let's burn this down unless some hidden figure who's contributing
