Currently, knotificationitem isn't SOVERSIONed. I guess this is a bug?

Adding to the right CMake file[1] something like
set_target_properties(knotificationitem-1 PROPERTIES VERSION
 1.0.0 SOVERSION 1) 
should fix that.

I don't know the right time to fix it to not end up breaking things for
some developers, though, so I hope someone else can take it from here.

(and btw, the techbase page
http://techbase.kde.org/Policies/New_KDE_Library_API_Policy should
probably be updated to reflect the end result)
