Review request for kdelibs and Hugo Pereira Da Costa.


The first part of this patch makes the Qt::AA_DontShowIconsInMenus configurable in kdelibs via a KDE config entry.

The second part exposes this config entry in the Styles KCM, just right between the settings to hide icons on buttons or toolbars.

Note that GNOME also has this configuration option.

This addresses bug 253339.

  /trunk/KDE/kdelibs/kdeui/kernel/kglobalsettings.cpp 1184959 



Hiding the menu icons works with all styles (even pure Qt styles), because Qt itself respects this attribute when setting up the menus.

The only "bug" is a missing dialog informing the user that changing this option only affects applications after restarting (same as Xft font settings or locale options). But before I add that, I want some feedback.
