Moin moin,

I've moved PlasmaKPart, a KPart which can be used by any application who 
wishes to enable a dashboard/summary page in their application, into 
kdereview. PlasmaKPart leverages the Plasma Development Platform to do 
most of the work for any developer; the only thing really left for 
developers is the development of the widgets, which can either be done 
using Plasma or using QWidgets easily wrapped in Plasma objects.

The documentation on this KPart, including the details to implement 
Plasma object injection using the Plasma::PluginLoader API (already in 
trunk) currently resides as a work in progress at . 
It will be completed over the next 24 hours.

There are no dependencies for this code outside of kdelibs and 
kdebase/runtime (as far as I can tell).

There is currently in plasmakaprt/shell a testing/example shell which 
will show the minimal amount of work necessary to deploy this kpart as 
well as the Plasma::PluginLoader API.

This code is directly related to my Google Summer of Code work. The plan 
is to move this into kdebase-runtime.

PS: I may be out of sync a little bit over the next two to three days as 
I move in and transition to dorm life for my first year of university.
