Appmenu support in KDE 4.10

Appmenu support for KDE is now available in master for testing.

This is mostly a Kded module able to:
- Display a top screen menubar

- Display a menu at wanted position

When a user click on kwin application menu button, it just tell to kded-appmenu to show menu for window at position.

At this time, only oxygen support the button but we hope support in Aurorae for KDE > 4.10

To test this, you have to:
- Install appmenu-qt (available in openSUSE, ArchLinux and Kubuntu)
- Setup your menu behaviour in kcm style

After fixing plasma-widget-menubar for using kded-appmenu, next step will be to look at GMenuModel from Canonical and move to this API if possible (already used in Gnome-shell).

Thanks to Lionel Chauvin for first patch version!

Thanks to Thomas Lübking, Martin Gräßlin and Hugo Pereira Da Costa for help!
