SK refactoring and OSDW

Yesterday, there was a fairly productive meeting with some people that are interested in helping with integrating SK into Plasma. We came up with a pretty good idea of how to move forward. It mostly involves changing the build structure and begin separating functionality that caused problems in SuperKaramba "classic".

Just prior to the meetup, thanks to Vinay Khaitan and Matt Broadstone, SuperKaramba was ported to Qt4. Although it at least launches the theme dialog, it is by far from functional. It will probably be non-functional for a little while with all the changes taking place. Btw, this isn't happening in the 3.5 branch. It is being refactored, ripped apart and put back together again in /trunk/KDE/kdeutils/superkaramba/. Here's the obligatory screenshot of it running:

The rough draft of the proposed "going forward" plan will be posted on the plasma wiki later today.

That brings us to OSDW. There was a mention on the panel-devel list about buying drinks for people attending plasma meetings, being able to prove it and show up in San Diego. So, Wade Olson, I'll be seeing you in October with a smile on my face! That being said, I would now like to ask for someone to help make Matt Broadstone's dream a reality. Mr Broadstone is an avid KDE hacker working on the Plasma team with myself and many others. His finances are a bit shy and would appreciate any help in getting his butt to San Diego. Donations are appreciated, but please direct them to his page or maybe through the KDE donations page. If you do the latter be sure to name him in your contribution.
