Using dynamic Qt plugins in KAuth

Hello list,

After seeing that ldd'ing libkdecore gives out quite a lot of things due to 
KAuth + polkit-1, I decided it could be a good thing to move backend handling 
to a dynamic plugin architecture, so I did it (patch attached).

I think this approach is better, it does not change anything in API/ABI (the 
only change in public headers is that now a function is exported), I tested it 
and works quite well.

I was wondering if such a change is ok (I still did not commit it) and if it's 
eligible for a backport to 4.4.
