Nice to see you working that fast!

Some small things i've found:
	* Any reason KIdleTime::idleTime is not const?
	* The widget/QTimer based poller seems a bit too resource intensive, do we 
really need it given all the other kind of pollers that seem to be available?
	* AbstractSystemPoller(QObject *parent) seems a bit not correct not passing 
the parent to the QWidget constructor.
