Review request: network:/ kioslave now in kdereview

I just moved the network:/ kioslave to kdereview/networkkio. It should be 
stable and quite usable already. The destination module might be kdenetwork. 
Urs, would that be okay?

This kioslave lists the network from a device centric point of view, listing 
all devices in the (for now) local network and the services running on them. 
A kded module triggers KDirLister refreshes on network changes, so any views 
are up-to-date. Service items can be clicked at and will forward to a 
matching url. Additionally it could be possible to assign other handlers for 
the mimetypes of the services/devices.
Dolphin and Plasma folderview will need some better support for non-file 
listings, as can be seen by this kioslave. Will discuss this the next days, 
as this also hits exising kioslaves.

No docs, as it is a kioslave. Only tested on Linux. Krazy complains dealt with 
a few hours ago, should all be met, but then I changed quite some code today,

Another text, which did not make it to the last Commit-Digest, will be posted 
in my blog tonight. I just have to hurry now :)
