Review request for Dolphin and kdelibs.


When a url starts with \\ it can be assumed that the user wants to access a network path. Nothing else starts with \\ anyway.
This patch adds a KUriFilter that converts a windows network path "\\home\path\to\folder" to a samba path "smb://home/path/to/folder".
The filter is added in KUrlNavigator thus all apps that make use of that will be affected.

OK to commit? (since i'm allowed to commit now ^_^)

This addresses bug 153347.

I tested it on some network shares to access it by the windows path names and it seems to work just fine. No issues so far.
