Review request for KDE Base Apps, KDE Runtime, Plasma, and Ivan Čukić.


Added groups kde-baseapps and kde-runtime


(follows discarded review: 104391)

The plugin adds global keyboard shortcuts for changing the activity.
Defaults start from Qt::MetaModifier + Qt::Key_F1.

Initially, this functionality was implemented (without correct results) using KActitivities::Controller.
Using DBus seems fine, just that... it forces kamd to start with 3-4 seconds delay - so it really needs modification/and i would like more guidance related to dbus :D.
Other than that, feedback is needed. 

This addresses bugs 265069 and 273467.

Logged in.
Used the default shortcuts to switch activities.
It works!
