[KDE/Mac] Avoiding baloo trouble

I just found on the German OpenSUSE mailing list posts which discuss that users actively disable baloo on *Linux* because of the baloo indexer running wild by excessively consuming CPU power as well as memory [1,2]. 

This shows that my feeling was right that we must make sure that we can effectively deactivate baloo on OSX for now by using 

	$ echo "Indexing-Enabled=false" >>~/.kde4/share/config/baloofilerc

The folks said this is comparable to those times back then when nepomuk and strigi where introduced… :-(

I figure it’s wise to let the 4.13 ripen a little before we change over on MacPorts to the new version, just as Nicolas said.
