KTimeChooser moved to kdereview

I just moved a new widget for editing times to kdereview: KTimeChooser.
It is a reworked version of KPIM::KTimeEdit, basically a time editing widget
with a combobox containing a list of predefined times (with configurable
interval between them). It is meant to be used in places where the user is
more likely to choose a time using the combobox than entering it manually
(eg. when scheduling meetings which usually begin at :00, :15, :30 or :45).
- Times can be entered and displayed using the configured time format
- Additionally times can be entered in military (eg. 1830) or plain 24h
format (eg. 18:30). Those times will be recognized and "localized" using
KTimeValidator (private API).
Minor issues/things to talk about:
- I'm using a model to provide the list of times to choose from. It seems
there's a Qt bug so the widget will not resize properly if the model is
reset. You can witness the bug when unchecking "include seconds" in the
example app - I filed a task tracker item with the trolls.
- Keyboard navigation is currently handled the same way KPIM::KTimeEdit does
it: Up/Down will add/subtract a minute, PgUp/PgDown will add/subtract an
hour. Alternatively keyboard navigation could be done the same way QTimeEdit
does it (Up/Down adds/subtracts 1 to the field the cursor is hovering,
PgUp/PgDown adds/subtracts a bigger value to the field the cursor is
You can find the widget at
http://websvn.kde.org/trunk/kdereview/ktimechooser. An example application
and unit-tests are provided. krazy2 reports no issues, valgrind doesn't find
anything related to the new classes either.
