Review request for KDE Runtime, David Faure and Fredrik Höglund.

Description (updated)

This is an attempt to make the KWallet password prompt much harder to ignore or miss.

Now the prompt should always be in front of the parent window. and it should unminimize if needed, and demand attention.

[UPDATE] I'm reopening as I still think this is needed, even in 4.9.
I changed the things that gave people heartburn in my first attempt, notably removing the usertime=0 

Diffs (updated)

  kwalletd/kwalletd.cpp 309c45f 


Testing (updated)

Just using it in various scenarios.
For example, if the akonadi maildispatcher needs to open kwallet now the password prompt is always in front of kmail

[UPDATE] Without the usertime=0, you can still move kmail in front of the password prompt dialog. but at least you see the prompt first.
