Review request for kdelibs.


This patch addresses bug report 160024 ( on QTreeView navigation using arrows.
Default behavior (from QCommonStyle) when one presses the left arrow in a non expandable child item, is to do nothing. Requested default behavior, for styles that inherits kstyle, (and already implemented on Qt Windows style as well as Oxygen) is to jump to the parent item. 

Since no alternative default action is associated to this action, we don't see any reason not to enable the navigation behavior above, as a kstyle default, since it turns out to be quite handy. 

Besides, styles deriving from kstyle can always disable it. 

This addresses bug 160024.

Tested in dolphin, systemsettings, using oxygen style.
