[kde-edu]: Unmaintained apps in kdeedu

Here are open bug counts for the unmaintained apps:

KBruch: 2 bugs, 2 wishes

KAnagram: 1 bug, 1 wish

KLatin: 1 crash, 1 bug, 1 wish

KPercentage: 1 bug, 1 wish

Judging from these low bug counts, it seems that these apps are in reasonable 
shape, despite the lack of maintainer.  If we want to keep them for KDE-4.0, 
we should each volunteer to do a "QA audit" of one (or more) of these four 
apps, in which we come up with a checklist of all of the program's expected 
behaviors, and then run the app and check that each one works properly.  I've 
done that for KStars leading up to release, and I find it's a good way to 
find hidden issues.
