libmarble4 needs to include plugins

Bug Description

Binary package hint: libmarble4

kdeedu packaging for marble/libmarble4 is wrong in that that all plugins are shipped in "marble" package (which is application), but it should be shipped in "libmarble4" package (widget library) as the widget cannot operate without plugins.

This is current content of "marble" package:

Whole "/usr/lib/kde4/plugins" and "/usr/lib/kde4/" should be moved to "libmarble4" package. This will leave only applications in "marble" package.

This has been discussed with marble author on IRC:
[13:19:38] <Lure> tackat: regarding bug 182144 - I think this is another packaging issue in debian/ubuntu
[13:20:12] <Lure> tackat: it seems the problem is that "libmarble4" package should include plugins too
[13:20:27] <Lure> tackat: and "marble" should only include application itself...
[13:20:51] <tackat> Lure: yes, a libmarble4 without plugins won't be fun
[13:20:56] -*- tackat rolls eyes
[13:21:19] <Lure> tackat: I know, you have to be angry on "these packagers" by now ;-)
[13:21:30] <tackat> Lure: right, it should just contain the application
[13:22:01] <Lure> tackat: will write in the bug, close it as DOWNSTREAM and open task in Ubuntu/Debian
[13:31:30] <Lure> tackat: what about is this application specific, or should go together with widget
[13:36:56] <Lure> tackat: I suspect this is KPart, so I would think libmarble4 (with widget) would be more appropriate
[13:37:26] <Lure> tackat: that would leave "marble" package only apps (marble, geodatatest, tilecreator)

Additional note from Torsten Rahm (see upstream bug):
The Marble-KPart should rather be shipped with the application. Otherwise the widget would require KDE 4 to be installed. If the KPart is shipped with the application then even people who don't have KDE 4 installed should be able to use it, as the only components that require KDE 4 are the KPart and the application.

Fix is in BZR branch. I have tested it in pbuilder and installed marble test packages and they work fine.
This just need Kubuntu core-dev to upload.
