please review ksmtp, which is now in kdereview.

KSMTP is a small simple library with a KJob-based API similar to KIMAP or KDAV 
to send mime messages via SMTP. It was initially written in 2011 by Gregory 
Schlomoff but since then it's been lying around in playground without any 
interest or use. I have recently picked it up, ported to Frameworks and 
improved the job handling and authentication to make the library ussable for 
KDE PIM and would like to have it released as part of KDE Applications 17.08.

KDE PIM currently uses a custom KIO Slave to send messages via SMTP, which is 
hard to maintain and extend. Having a Job-based library like KSmtp will make 
it much easier for us to introduce support for example for Google XOAUTH2 
authentication mechanism.
