Support dropping a folder to the desktop creates a folderview

This makes it offer to create a Folder view when dropping a folder onto the desktop rather than just a simple icon

Dropped a couple of folders ontop my desktop, got a folder view with the url set to the folder I just dropped

Do you really want that? What's the amount of time that you want to create a new folder view when dropping folders? What is the amount of time that you really just want to copy the folder to your desktop? How hard is it to create a folder view in a more manual way? Does that suffice?
  1. If you use the folder containment, nothing changes and you still get offered to copy/move/link the file. If you use the (default) desktop containment it now asks whether you want t create an icon widget or a folderview, just like Plasma 4 did.
