KIdleTime moved to kdereview

Hello list,

I've just moved KIdleTime to kdereview. KIdleTime is a library that lets 
developers easily play with user idle time. It provides a nice API, that lets 
the developer retrieve the idle time of the system, but also being notified 
upon reaching certain idle times or when the system goes back from an idle 

The good:
 - Uses XSync where possible and features intelligent polling for maximum 
efficiency and performance
 - Multiplatform, already tested and working on Windows and Linux (both with 
XSS and XSync)
 - Features an example that covers the core functionalities

The bad:
 - The mac code was copied/pasted from Kopete and needs testing.

I'd like to move it to kdelibs. Many applications, such as RSIBreak, 
powerdevil, konversation and ktimetracker have already interest in using it. 
Hopefully Kopete & friends will switch to it as well.

Also, there are no HAVE_X* macros in cmake, since I didn't want to reimplement 
the checks for a temporary location, and they're all set to 1. I will the 
#cmakedefines when KIdleTime will be in its final location.
