+/** An RKContextHandler can be thought of as an instance of a context. E.g. the x11 device context by itself is just an abstract description. To actually use the context for a given device, an RKContextHandler is used. The normal way to construct an instance of this class is using RKContextMap::makeContextHandler().
+The context handler is responsible for
+a) providing a KXMLGUIClient to insert into the GUI
+b) provide and handle KActions to invoke the plugins in the context
+c) provide invoked plugins with context information.
+The last part (providing context information) is the most important one in this class. Providing context information works like this: When a plugin is invoked, we look for an RKComponentPropertyBase called "incontext" in the plugin. If it has one, it will be set to the id of this context. If not, it will be ignored. Further context properties can be added to the context handler by calling RKComponentBase::addChild(). These will be set in the invoked plugin in the same way.
