[Bug 58044] Noatun should be more task and not plugin-oriented

I have started to improve Noatun here and there and make some ideas from this 
bug become reality :)

The patch you can find at
http://metz.gehn.net/noatun-popupmenu.patch [26kB]
changes the following things:

- Makes the Actions popupmenu in Noatuns global popup-menu a KActionMenu 
instead, old API calls are wrapped and new calls were added to napp so you 
can now go and insert()/remove() entries from it instead of dealing with item 

- Disables that Action popup-menu if it has no entries. This won't work 
properly with old plugins who add menu-items the 'wrong' way (i.e. use 
napp->pluginMenu()->insertItem(...) like metatag did) but I hope there's no 
plugin out there which does such ugly things (napp->pluginMenuAdd() and 
napp->pluginMenuRemove() were designed for that, dunno why the pluginMenu 
itself is accessible anyway).

- Added a Visualization sub-menu in Noatuns global popup-menu, again using 
KActionMenu. Maybe I can change this back to a simple QPopupMenu but I don't 
think the KAction stuff hurts anyway. At least you can toggle your favourite 
VIS plugins on and off with two clicks :)

Btw, I still have some ideas to improve the current situation regarding 
plugins, i.e. I have a to-be-finished playlist and a lot of more or less 
working changes for our VIS-plugins :=)
