Strage..... Pretty straight forward in Red Hat.....

I tried to be the most high level as possible, but the KDirLister design
is too much signal-slot based and the code would become splited and ugly.
In some situations, KDirLister didn't gave me the functionality I needed.
I only used scandir when it was realy realy the last thing to do.

I tried that hard also, but I never understood how KDialogBase works, and
how to integrate it with QtDesigner.
I missed some code-versus-screenshots in the documentation, plus
KDialog-QTDesigner-howto integration.

Will work on this.

I didn't worked in the installation part. I'm not very experienced with
autoconf/automake. Expect some contributions here.

Yeah..... I would like to have some Musicman actions in the "Tools" menu
also, but looks like this is a completelly different kind of plugin,
based on KXMLGUIClient.

Thank you,
