[Kst] MDI Modes

As you saw from my last commits, Kst is now using KMDI, which means Kst is 
horribly broken in HEAD until we switch to using the new view code.  It would 
be a huge effort to port the old view code over because it is assumed all 
over the place that there is only one view.  Meanwhile, I added some actions 
to the settings menu so that everyone can experiment with the different MDI 
modes.  We have smoe advantages with childframe mode in that the central 
widget is available for us to use as we like.  I'm thinking it might be a 
good place to put the data manager even.  Barth mentioned that he liked the 
idea of tabbed mode.  Does anyone have strong feelings about this?  Should I 
leave it selectable even (with a proper action of course)?

The next trick becomes how to deal with all of our actions and "modes".
