[Kst] Embedding plot definition info in plot data file

Hi Syam,

There is an option to save the data into the .kst file.

Once you've created all the plots that you want to, select the "Save Data" 
item under the main File menu.
This is a checkable menu item, and should be checked to save your data into 
the kst file.

Then just save the kst file as normal.
