delete clover

Mike Blumenkrantz requested to merge zmike/mesa:CLosure into main

I'm not expecting this to be merged today.

I'm not expecting it to be merged next week.

But I'm not sure I see any reason to keep this in the tree besides "historical relevance" considering how obviously dead and abandoned it is.

I'll be gone for the next months, so if a consensus is reached, please merge without me.
