kDebug() needs to be removed or get the proper area (kfile_area)

New getStartUrl needs @since KDE 4.3

You need to provide proper API update for kfiledialog.h too (maybe it would be 
a good idea just removing it from kfiledialog.h and put a link to kfilewidget 

Also it would be good if you could update kio/kfile/tests/kfiledialogtest.cpp 
with some tests covering all the new cases.
