training screen: better placement of key hint item

to read the text he has to type. Additionally the item is now in front
of all over visual elements so the it gets never clipped by the keyboard

Do not use stackingOrder in LanczosFilter to get all EffectWindows
LanczosFilter tries to discard all cached textures in the timer event by
getting the stacking order and iterating over it. But this approach seems
wrong from several aspects.
First of all the xStackingOrder does not include Deleted windows. So if
a cached texture still exists on an EffectWindow for a Deleted it would
not be discarded.
Also the xStackingOrder could result in an update from X because the
stacking order is currently considered dirty.
Last but not least the EffectsHandler::stackingOrder creates a temporary
list of EffectWindows - good for Effects but not necessarily useful
inside KWin core.
Instead the LanczosFilter gets the list of Clients, desktops, unmanaged
and deleted and iterates over them to check whether there is a texture to
Fix Bug 289647 - Default text engine 'kde' fails when pasting text longer than 513/741 characters

Fix kmail autocompletion from akonadi.
My commit 02f5f0214e made autocompletion from nepomuk work better, but broke
completion from akonadi. I kept the "keywords" based code, but now it's only
used for the special case of nickname-based search (because the nickname shouldn't
appear in the completion item). For everything else it really doesn't make sense
to have a search engine (akonadi/nepomuk) on top of a search engine
(the one inside KCompletion).
This time I verified that:
* nepomuk search still works
* contacts from akonadi work again
* contact groups from akonadi work (after previous commit)
* nickname-search in akonadi still doesn't work, but it didn't before. More work
needed for that one. This is the only reason to keep KMailCompletion around btw,
everything else would work without it.

Improve integration with hiding panels
This patch changes 2 things:
- Changes the code from a js function to setting a qml property. This is
better because we don't have to connect to all the changing signals to
re-evaluate (there were some weird problems in this regard).
- Also it makes it so when you have a dialog opened, the status is set to
AcceptingInputStatus, this way the panel doesn't hide while you're writing.
This is useful because this way you can see if somebody talks to you while
you're chatting already.

Expansion of the References section by adding features to insert hyperlinks,
bookmarks and links to bookmarks.
This patch adds the following features :
1. Inserting hyperlinks
-- User has a choice of inserting a link by specifying the target and the
-- The user may fetch the title from the web page itself (contents of the
"title" tag ). This feature also handles URL redirects.This feature will especially
help in cases when a user has a list of links referred to and a list of references
has to be created. Just copy/pasting the URL, clicking fetch and then insert will do the job.
2. Linking to bookmarks
-- A user can specify a bookmark name and the link text. To help the user
with inserting a bookmark, an auto completer is used.
3. Adding Bookmark using a labeled widget ( similar to the way footnote and
endnote labels are entered)
4. Improvement to the Manage Bookmarks ui by adding feature to insert a bookmark
and fixing bugs.
A list of commit headlines follow :
Fixed Insert and Rename feature in ManageBookmarks.
Deleted Advanced options.

honor filetype setting WRT embedding
there are 3 distinct states a filetype can have WRT kpart embeding
- always embed
- never embed
- do whatever the parent node does (e.g. application/foo would take the
setting of application)
since the logic to determine which of those it is going to be we are using
a bit of code imported from konqueror deciding in a boolean fashion
whether or not we are supposed to embed or not. this is particularly non-
intrusive as the decision directly relates to whether a kpart is created,
if not the file will simply be krun'.
this change is using static functions for the imported code. rationale
being that they are in fact static and not having them reflected in the
header makes them all the easier to remove should a better solution
arise in the future.
with that in mind: while the code is copy'n'pastable it seems like a
good idea to move this into some shared library in the long term such
that konqueror and rekonq (and any other kpart enabled app) can use the

All references to KBattleship replaced by KNavalbattle.
Due copyright issues KBattleship is now called KNavalbattle. Even so,
the program's installation folder as well as its image files and final
binary are all named making references to KBattleship.
This patch removes all references to the project's previous name,
changing its build settings as well as renaming some of its files.
