Bower is deprecated for new projects, use Yarn instead

@blake @vimala

So I updated polymer-cli and it told me that bower is deprecated and recommended that new projects use yarn or webpack. In fact even the bower website says the same thing:

Should we switch to yarn?

I had looked into this a while back, it seemed polymer hadn’t exactly decided what should replace bower. We are doing the polymer recommended thing of committing dependencies into the repository which makes the choice of package manager less relevant. Anyway until polymer comes up with a firm recommendation for the replacement of bower (or better yet stops using bower) we should just keep using bower.

This issue will be resolved with Polymer 3, which uses Yarn.
