[Kst] Kst translations

Thanks for your note.

As things turn out, kst2 is a pure QT4 app, and doesn't use KDE libs at all.
We did this to make it easier to run on Windows and Mac, where KDE is
not as well
supported as it is under linux.  The major costs of this are:
  -We aren't actually part of extragear, so the distros are not as
likely to pick us up.
  -We don't have translations (though they are probably possible.  We
do use tr() everywhere.)
  -Weaker KDE desktop integration (icons and KIO are the big ones)
  -No access to KDE's timezone classes.

We do have porting to KDE in our wishlist, but we haven't actually
decided if it is the right thing to do.

If anyone has recent experience with building and installing KDE apps
on Windows and Macs, which would
alleviate my fears, I would love to hear about them.  In the meantime,
I think we will... delay... the decision.
