Review request for kdelibs.


The attached patch addresses a couple of short comings/missing functionality in KIO::AccessManager...

#1. Adds support for putting ioslaves on hold in KIO::AccessManager so that a connection can be reused whenever a request
is handed off to another process or application. This is very essential to the kdewebkit module when dealing with the 
unsupportedContent signal that QWebPage emits. That signal is emitted when a user clicks on a video file or a .tgz file for example.

#2. Changes how redirection is handled by KIO::AccessManager. Currently application that use KIO::AccessManager always receive a 302 on redirections regardless of what the server response was. That is because the HTTP header meta-data is not yet available when the redirection signal is received. This patch corrects that by changing how the job handling the current request is killed in the redirection handling slot. Instead of killing the job quietly, it kills it with the EmitResult flag set so that the slot handling the job's finished signal is invoked. At that point the HTTP header meta-data is available and the correct data status code is propgated upstream...

Tested on 4.3 branch, but not trunk. If anyone can test compilation of the attached patch on trunk that would be great...
