Added simple Type-and-Select feature to Folderview applet

With the type and select feature implemented in the Folder View Plasma applet, I hope that we finally resolve bug 187241 completely. This makes the applet even more usable than before.

This fix was different in a way that I had my first ever usability discussion with the KDE Usability team over the type and select behavior differing from Dolphin (and in general with anything derived from QAbstractItemView). Finally we concluded that the behavior be modified to match Dolphin's, and thats what the current state is.

The fix will ship with KDE SC 4.5

Made the Add Applet... panel context menu option to work

Since the new Widgets Explorer was added to Plasma, the Add Widgets... options from the Panel context menu was not working. I thought it might be fixed later because Widgets Explorer was in heavy development.

Added HOME/END keys navigation support to folder view plasmoid

This revision adds the required support to the applet so that navigation to the first and last icons.

Improved applet FolderView configuration dialog

As reported in BUG: 186283 , the Filter page in the configuration of the Folder View applet behaved differently from user expectation. Some of the files were shown/not being shown when the opposite was expected. This was due to a peculiarity in the design methodology employed.

This SVN Revision does two things -

Added Captioning to System Monitor Network Applet
