    Add new KDE HIG · 47840f36

    This is a new HIG that I've written to replace the old one.
    ## Design goals
    - Be brief and only include actionable information; no filler text or
      endless philosophizing.
    - Be more prescriptive than descriptive, because descriptiveness is
      impossible when the things being described are themselves currently
      inconsistent. Instead, make recommendations based on KDE's philosophy
      and most successful designs.
    - Focus on QtQuick for specific code/component recommendations.
    - ...But rather than offer details about how to implement every component
      under the sun, let their API documentation, default settings, and
      existing implementations do the explaining.
    - Primary audience is app developers, not Plasma developers or VDG icon
      designers. Plasma's core UI is different from that of an app, and a more
      focused HIG for it can be done later if needed.
    - Don't focus on visual styling, as the default style itself should be the
      source of truth for this, and our styling is also in some flux right now.
      Details about styling for custom components can be added later.
