Review request for kdelibs and usability.


Added usability to reviewers.


This patch adds a "Change Text..." button to the tool bar edit dialog. This helps users who add many tool buttons to their tool bars, even those that have a quite long text. For example, the user could change "View Document Source" to just "Source".

The code respects any iconText() set by the application, and stores the changes together with the changed icon in the user's ui.rc file of the respective application.

It is intended that the changed text only shows in the right (active) action list, as it does not affect the menu texts.

Maybe we should have a button to revert to default text (and icon) for individual actions, I may add that separately.

This addresses bug 201346.
