Bug Description

There should be some basic functionalities available from a GUI, like:
add/remove feeds, refresh feed list, maybe an about box

They should be available from:
a) a simple menu (i.e. Floaty > the listed functions) and if implemented in a menu, then a close(which closes window) and a quit (which closes the window and quits the service) would be welcome

b) a toolbar (according to design mockups this won't happen anytime soon)

c) in a box (like the feeds) where could be an add ,a remove feed, a refresh and an about button

I do plan to implement only:
  * Adding new feeds
  * Removing feeds
  * Drag and drop (low priority)

I prefer to not have refresh function. IIRC default refresh interval is 20 minutes. Later, service will be capable to watch network changes, so if you connect to network (e.g. wake up from suspend), it will automatically update feeds. Also after startup, it will refresh feeds.

This will be huge commit with updates of grid and so on, I am thinking about removing daily builds and rather make builds of functional code so I will avoid big commits.

I rewrote it to Clutter, adding dialog should work, all url handling is async, so there should be no UI freeze (service side is still not async though).

I plan polish UI of add dialog and also going to think about DnD
