synching kactivities in kdelibs/4.7

Hi all,

I'd like to ask for comment about the plan to update the copy of 
libkactivities (which resides in kdelibs/experimental/kactivities) to its 
latest status. The latest status is BIC compared with the copy in kdelibs, but 
required to build workspace master, and Plasma Active.

Moving towards Frameworks 5, we've split out the kactivities library into its 
own repo (kde:kactivities), but left, for compat reasons, a copy back in 
kdelibs (which now ran out of date).

Initially, I thought we could get away with this, but it causes more headache 
than I think we should bear, especially with kdelibs master being frozen, and 
the changes just touching the experimental lib.

Right now, kde-workspace master depends on these changes, and so does Plasma 
Active. There are no other users that I know of, so the scope of this change 
is rather minimal.

Any objections to this?
