This patch makes ark always use an external viewer application instead of using the clunky internal preview thing. The internal viewer would just embed a plain kpart into a window, but without providing any of the XMLGUI or whatever from that part. Thus, when you for example clicked a PDF, you couldn't print it. The advantages of the internal viewer are imo overall quite questionable, and are far outweighted by its disadvantages.

Plus, it removes code ;)
Clicking files opens them in the default application, as it should.

I created this because I figured there would be a consensus on it; turns out there wasn't. Maybe I'll revisit this at a later time.
