Don't set window.jQuery and window.$ when inside a commonjs environment

If I try to bundle jquery as a dependency inside a redistributable standalone library with browserify I can't have my library polluting the global window namespace with my version of jQuery.

Please (re-)introduce behavior where window.jQuery and window.$ are only set if _not_ in a commonjs environment. This was the case at least for 1.10.2 but not anymore in 2.x.

If someone needs these globals for some plugin or such, they can trivially do var jquery = window.jQuery = window.$ = require('jquery');

The variables are exposed in CommonJS for the sake of browser emulators, as is the case when jQuery is included with Node. However, we have been planning to add a build option to remove this exposure from jQuery (whether for the sake of CommonJS or AMD inclusion). Follow up in this ticket: #13566
