Review request for KDevelop.


Implement a generic hash function (minor variation of one-at-a-time) which can be used to hash the data of item repository data classes.
The good:
    Removes around 80% of bucket clashes and 100% of actually equal hashes for different types in the real-world C++ cases I've tested.
    No need to pull numbers out of a hat and hope you didn't clash.
The bad:
    The hash function is more expensive, and so might cancel out the gains in speed, at least in smaller projects (hard to create a real-world benchmark that can show the difference)
The meh:
    Either way it makes no visually discernable difference, so it should probably be seen from an ease-of-use perspective.

I've had this sitting around for a while, but here it is for reviewer's pleasure.
