Removal of KPackage from the KDEAdmin module

In playground we are developing Shaman (
management-frontend ) which is actually a replacement for it with a different 
architecture (the library underneath serves as a "Solid" of package 
management), but we're aiming extragear for obvious reasons.

I don't know if Daniel is interested in putting KPackageKit into kdeadmin, but 
I think he's good with extragear as well to keep up with packagekit-qt.
