freerdp support for krdc

As far as I know, rdesktop is almost a dead project, compare to freerdp,
its a more active in development and adds many features for RDP protocol,
such as RemoteFX, RemoteApp, and media sharing.

I'm not a freerdp expert and I learn how to use it while I'm implement
freerdp plugin for krdc.
But you can see how powerful it is by search it on youtube, it can
play Diablo 3 from
an remote virtual machine[1].

And KDE has this request[2] from 2 years ago.
I found this bug while searching a freerdp client for KDE, so I think
it might worth to write one.

BTW, I forgot to mention that you need the latest freerdp[3] to run
the freerdp plugin for krdc


Best regards,
