Dataengine for browser bookmarks

The idea was on plasma-devel some time ago:
Write a dataengine which lists the bookmarks of browsers like Firefox, 
Konqueror or Opera.

The bookmarks runner got the feature of querying Firefox' and Opera's 
bookmarks in KDE SC 4.4 or 4.5. I used the code of this runner to implement 
the dataengine. The bookmarks are listed hierarchical. You can find its source 
code in my scratch repository:
Currently Konqueror, Firefox 3.x and Opera are supported. I'll work on support 
for Chromium/Google Chrome later.

I'd like to move the project to KDE review but at first I would appreciate some 
feedback about the way it works, you can find information about it in the 
README file.

If it is accepted and moved to kde-workspace I would port the runner to use 
this engine.

Best regards,
Jan Gerrit Marker (jangmarker)
