Shared OSD Service for KDE

I've been working to create a centralised way of rendering OSD widgets upon 
request for KDE4. Finally I wrote a KDED service which uses KOSD[0] to render 
OSD widgets.

KOSD is a small KDE application which draws nice, polished and plasma-themed 
OSD with progress bars. I decoupled the Widget class from it and rewrote it as 
a KDED service.

Currently KMix and the brightness patch of Felix Geyer are adjusted to make D-
Bus calls when they need to show a notification.

I don't know whether to implement this sort of thing as a KDED daemon makes 
sense but at least it works and we're using it in Pardus 2009.
