Review request for Kate, kdelibs, Release Team, Christoph Cullmann, and David Faure.


David, this is "new code" (actually moved code) that wants an exception for kdelibs/interfaces, do you agree to get it in?


This patch adds the KTextEditor::MessageInterface to the KTextEditor interfaces in kdelibs 4.11.

This interface exists in Kate since KDE 4.10, and is already used internally to show messages when needed (e.g. search & replace, or swap file recover bar). By adding this interface to kdelibs, applications like KDevelop, Kile, etc... can use this interface to show passive interactive notifications in a KTextEditor::View.

With this commit, we also want to get feedback by potential users of this interface, so we can improve/tweak it again for KDE 5 (or whatever it will be called :) ).

Given the interface is in Kate since KDE 4.10, the interface is quite mature.
