Kate welcomes Find Selected

Thanks to quick work by Sebastian Pipping (sping) and some small contribution from my side, kate will have in KDE 4 the "Find Selected" feature.

Basically it's the find feature, but starts find automatically on the selected text and does not show the find dialog. At start it may seem not useful enough, but those used to Eclipse (ctrl+k) and nedit (ctrl+h) will surely welcome this new addition to kate

Thanks for the tip about Eclipse. They don't do a very good job exposing these kind of shortcuts to the user (Ctrl-K not in any menu that I could find).

As a Mac user, I have the cmd-E cmd-G sequence hard-wired into my hands instead.
