Ok, I just looked into kmid building on msvc now and it seems that it
builds fine on windows. I added an emerge script already which can be
build with 'emerge kmid' (dependencies should be found for now). After
having built it, you must run kbuildsycoca4.
I just saw a warning about no write access to a dir somewhere in the
home directory which is very likely wrong. Afair, we just disabled such
checks on Windows.

I also added kmid to the build server now, so probably in about 24h the
first results will be there.
