"Object to Path" should work for Connectors

Bug Description

At the moment, "Object to Path" doesn't seem to do anything when applied to Connectors, it only says "No objects to convert to path in the selection."

This is annoying, the only way to convert them is to do it manually in the xml editor or a plain text editor.

What it should do: Simply remove the inkscape:connection-end, inkscape:connection-start and inkscape:connector-type attributes.

I think this could be a nice beginner's bug, probably easily fixed by anyone who wants to start with inkscape.

The attached patch removes the connector attributes when a path is a connector and should fix the bug.

Looks good on Windows XP, Inkscape trunk 12304. No regression found so far, but I'll test again later on Debian with more test cases before committing.
Thanks for the patch!

Removing the backport-proposed tag. Too difficult (risky?) to backport due to changes in SPItem.
