Review request for KDevelop.

Repository: kdevelop


This patch introduces something I've been missing since I started using KDevelop: the possibility to reconfigure the way CMake is called after creating a project (= through the IDE rather than by editing a file in the .kdev4 directory).

The patch introduces the equivalent of all fields available on the fields available on the cmake initial creation dialog, under the advanced button.

It's open for discussion whether the ExtraArguments field should have a history too (otherwise it could be a simple text entry box), and whether that history should be shared with the one from `CMakeBuildDirChooser`.

I'd also like to point out that with this extended interface we could provide a reset button which removes `CMakeCache.txt` and the `CMakeFiles` directory (or, more surgically, `CMakeFiles/3.*`); this is actually required for changes to certain changes like the compiler to be used.
