Good point. qml extraction was missing too.
As it turns out the qml kcms get their domain name from the kaboutdata
componentname, so I rejiggered the kcm accordingly and the x-test l10n
now works. I do wonder if it'd make more sense to make the kcm a
separate translation domain altogether, calling everything
plasma_disks feels a bit awkward. At the same time having 2
translation domains for 10 strings seems silly too :S
