KPluginSelector about plugin dialogs

Hi there,

Some days ago I was suggested by Pino to use KAboutApplicationDialog for 
showing the info messages of the plugins on the KPluginSelector, instead of 

This gives a much better look, as well as consistency for what this is meant.

I have given to it two approaches, 1st one, try to take the aboutData of the 
component, and if that fails (because the plugin does not set that 
information), go and fetch the info from the desktop file (KPluginInfo).

There is only one remaining thing: when reading the license information from 
the desktop file, set it correctly on the about dialog.

I would like to know, if you think that when I finish the license thing, I can 
commit this into 4.1 yet...
