death to kdeaddons, long live extragear!

hi all...

i'd like to propose that we kill kdeaddons for kde4 and instead move 
everything worth keeping to extragear/. 

we will be releasing appropriately tagged items in extragear/ with each kde 
release, so they will still get releases.

but this will do two things:

- eliminate a rather odd little duckling of a module
- emphasize extragear better
- give packages just one place to pick extra addons from (extragear) rather 
than multiple

as an aside: even if this doesn't happen, plasma will not be using kdeaddons 
for non-core plugins but extragear exclusively.

i can move things out of kdeaddons over the next two weeks if this gets 
approved. it will also provide a good excuse to do some spring cleaning in 
there =)
