Attica dependency

I'd like for kdelibs to depend on libattica, not optionally any more but 

The reason is that currently the Get Hot New Stuff upload dialog depends on it 
and I don't really see much use in ifdef'ing everything now.
In the next iteration (KDE SC 4.5) we will have even more things depend on 
libattica (the social about dialog) and Get Hot New Stuff will miss out on the 
nice new additions and cease to work in some cases where only a new provider 
is set.
Distributions seem to package it up already. So I don't think this is a big 

Please let me know if it's OK to introduce this dependency. (Next Monday 

libattica is tiny and enables easy access to Open Collaboration Providers.
That is currently the sites, but Maemo will also implement it 
at some point.

libattica lives in kdesupport, you can find a first tarball here: but an updated version (the current 
kdesupport state) will soon be required since it includes some cleanup and one 
BIC change before the lib becomes used anywhere.
