Moving Baloo and Baloo-widgets into KDE SC

Rough Update -

The migrator has been written and tested for files. The tags, rating, comments 
and indexing configuration are properly migrated.

Considering that certain applications are still going to continue using 
Nepomuk for sometime. The plan is to move most of kde-runtime/nepomuk into its 
own repository which distributions can then choose to ship.

The tags and timeline kioslave will be renamed to nepomuk-tags and nepomuk-
timeline respectively. This is being done to avoid breaking the user 
experience, as 99% of the users will be migrating to Baloo and will expect 
their tag/timline related bookmarks to work as they did before.

With this I feel that distributions that think Nepomuk is still a priority can 
ship the nepomuk-runtime repository which will allow users to enable Nepomuk 
and use it.

Unless, someone still has objections I'll request a new repository for 
nepomuk-runtime, and ask the system admins to move baloo into kdesc.
