VCS integration (Bazaar). Plugin is already done and hosted on github. It uses 
code of ImportMetadataWidget directly (copied from kdevplatform) to provide 
implementation of VcsImportMetadataWidget. I think about integrating this 
plugin into kdevplatform so that it would be schipped with platform.
