Remove Wallet Tools

We already have the exact same funtionality in /contrib/bitrpc/bitrpc.py

If we really do need standalone scripts, then I'll write something to
pull it from that file, rather than having duplicate code.

Forgot to remove wallet tools from index.

### Looking for Wallet Tools?
BitRPC.py is able to do the exact same thing as `walletchangepass.py` and `walletunlock.py`. Their respective commands in BitRPC.py are:

bitrpc.py walletpassphrasechange

### Wallet Tools ###
These are two simple python scripts which send the appropriate RPC commands to unlock a wallet and change a wallet password. **They are intended to prevent users from having to enter their password as a command-line argument which could then be stored in the console buffer/history in plaintext.**

Both tools rely on bitcoin/bitcoind running with `server=1` and an `rpcuser` and `rpcpassword` set in `bitcoin.conf`. They can be easily modified for non-standard ports. [walletunlock.py](/contrib/wallettools/walletunlock.py) unlocks the wallet for 60 seconds by default, changeable in code, and both modules rely upon python-json-rpc.
