KSpellingHighlighter is necessary for kmail/knode with depth color for quoting 
+ spell checking.
=> if we move KSyntaxHighlighter::KSyntaxHighlighter into kdepim we must move 
KSpellingHighlighter::KSpellingHighlighter spell checking too, because it 
derived from KSyntaxHighlighter for depth color storing.
