ah, right, so there are 3 ways to add a file to a project:

* creating a new file in plasmate itself (create)
* adding a file from elsewhere in the file system (import)
* plopping a file into the package directory using some other program (mv from 
the command line, the gimp with an image, etc)

create and import are easy and obvious: if the user selects "import" or 
creates a new file for a type we don't have an editor part ... it opens a file 
dialog. otherwise create the file.

there should be a KDirWatch on the Package root directory which takes care of 
the third case.
