The attached patch does the following:

#1. Adds setAlwaysReturnPreferredSearchProvidersOn/isAlwaysReturnPreferredSearchProvidersOn to ensure that the kuriikwsfilter plugin returns the preferred provider search engine list when no default search engine is specified. Currently it fails to do so and that behavior will not change unless you set the flag using the aforementioned function. 
With this change instead of having to do the following:

KUriFilterData filterData(foo);
filterData.setAlternateDefaultSearchProvider("google"); // hmm... would google be there ?
if (KUriFilter::self()->filterUri(filterData, QStringList() << "kuriikwsfilter")
  // do something here...


KUriFilterData filterData(foo);
if (KUriFilter::self()->filterUri(filterData, QStringList() << "kuriikwsfilter")
  // do something here...

#2. Deprecates the newly added function filterSearchUri(KUriFilterData&) in favor of one that accepts an enum filterSearchUri(KUriFilterData&, SearchFilterTypes types). That way instead of the caller having to know what "kuriikwsfilter' or 'kurisearchfilter' plugins do, they can specify "NormalTextFilter" or "WebShortcutFilter" or an OR combination of both. This change makes it possible to do search filtering without having to worry about which filters to use. For example, the last if statement from the above example would become:

if (KUriFilter::self()->filterSearchUri(filterData, KUriFilter::NormalTextFilter))
   // do something here...
