Beta 1 tagging is 21th, in 3 days.

In extragear/plasma, some applets are not working right now and 2 are disabled 
from build. 
Applets that need a bit of work right now: binary clock and frame have problem 
with applet size and handle size, fuzzy clock and filewatcher have size 
problems, twitter is disabled, ebn shows nothing, lancelot crashes.
luna, comic and bluemarble are the only ones working OK.
Several have config problems.

I did some porting here and there but I am totally lost for the sizing 
problems and I cannot fix them. They need to be adressed please. Several 
people had a go at the Frame handle which is not OK when 
verticalSize>horizontalSize but to no avail. So basically someone with size 
knowledge needs to install the extragear applets and fix their size.

I would find it bad to ship those applets in that state for beta1...
