Ubiquity Slideshow

I checked the ubiquity code, and the old code that was supposed to parse
slideshow.conf got lost during Maverick.  I've restored that code, and made
some modifications to how it was used.  Now it will parse that right when
Ubiquity opens up and set the size request of the webkit widget initially.
 Generally the webkit widget is requesting the most space, so this will
cause all the other "pages" to appear bigger as well to prevent the window
from resizing when the slideshow begins.

This also means that the old dimensions (798x450 or so) will be used for
Ubiquity until the new slideshow is uploaded on standard Ubuntu.  Any
derivatives are free to set their slideshows to whatever dimensions feel

I'll also upload these ubiquity changes shortly, so you should be able to
start seeing them in effect in this week's daily images.
