Hi all,

My first patch for kdelibs, yay! I'm not sure if this patch is very useful 
(according to ereslibre it might become obsolete soon), but for now it does 
it's job quite well.
This patch adds a new jobtracker for kjobs, the KDynamicJobTracker (name is 
still open for change if you have a better suggestion). This very simple 
jobtracker just forwards register calls to either the KUiServerJobTracker, or 
the KWidgetJobTracker, depending on the availability of a Kuiserver on the 
dbus. This patch also changes the default jobtracker for kio jobs to this new 
dynamic job tracker, so effectively this patch makes all kio transfers 
register to kuiserver (we've now got a nice little kuiserver plasma applet in 
playground) if it is available, or just fall back to the oldskool dialogs if 
it isn't.
I'm using this patch right now, and everything seems to work just fine. Please 
tell me what you think about it.
