In #2383, @zerebubuth proposed to deprecate and remove the /api/0.6/changes endpoint.

>From his reasoning: _This API call is little-used and IMHO should be deprecated and removed._

This pull request removes controller, api_ability, route and test case for this endpoint.

/api/0.6/changes is undocumented at this time and a rather obscure and specialized feature.

One (former?) user I could identify: @iandees has an 8 years old script out there (https://gist.github.com/iandees/1271803) to remove outdated tiles in some TileStache disk cache. Not sure, if this is still in use today?

* Check production log to identify any remaining users of this endpoint
