I was thinking about some of our dependencies this morning, and realised that I was pretty sure we weren't really using jQuery in the desktop side (we use it in standalone for ajax, although that can come out in a separate bug).

I did a quick bit of investigation, and it appears we can indeed drop jQuery - the only reference in the browser content code or the shared code is now obsolete. Although Backbone can use jQuery, its an optional requirement, and we're not using any Backbone views which would be the bits that use jQuery.
This does what it says. My rough calculations are about a 60k drop in dmg size, and ~300k less used per panel/conversation window.

I meant to put a comment in when I posted the patch. Its the only place we ever clean out the fixtures, and I took it out and the tests still pass. If we do need to put it back in, then I'd want to put it everywhere, but I think that'd be a separate bug.
