Integrate plasmoids and panel into kwinoverview

What it says in the title.

Advantages are obvious. Single place to access literally anything by pressing the start key.

User could have a completely empty desktop with no panels, widgets or any other distractions, leaving every pixel for the apps.

MacOS Dashboard. This idea comes and goes, but it will never die: Windows 7, Windows 11, Android lockscreen…

You can ‘leave every pixel for the apps’ by using an autohide panel without large changes to Plasma and keeping an intuitive, mouse-usable interface. That’s what I do and I’m really happy with the extra vertical screenspace!

It’s actually just gnome overview that’s the inspiration here. I only include plasmoids because they are a core component of Plasma. All interaction with the desktop happens via plasmoids.
