Review request for kdelibs.


- This patch contains the basic code which will put the limit on download speed of the ftp data transfer.
- It is looking for "speed-limit" meta-data for deciding how much speed control is required.
- If this meta-data is not found, code will work as it was before and no speed control related code will come into picture.
- This patch is the most basic one which I have testing on my system and to the extent it is controlling the speed.
- Lets say if speed limit is 30 KBps then mostly will get the avg speed around 30 to 35 KBps.
- I am using QTime for measuring time elapsed between two socket read call and its precision is in millisecond. Looping is taking place in microsecond and thats why I am getting almost all the time 0 as time elapsed in between two calls.
- To solve the above problem usleep is introduced to make it sync with the timer.
