Extendable context menu for KDirOperator

I think it would be good if KDirOperator allowed to extend the context
menu it shows. This would allow applications using the widget to plug
special actions into the menu, based on the file that the menu is
invoked on. For example KDevelop could offer version control actions for
version controlled files.

The attached patch adds a new signal which is emitted just before the
menu is actually shown. The signal carries both the current file item
and also the menu thats going to be shown. This way one can connect to
the signal and then extend the menu before its shown with additional

Of course this is 4.2 material, still any comments are welcome.


You will live a long, healthy, happy life and make bags of money.
