KisAboutApplication: update and fix layout

This MR proposes the following changes and fixes to KisAboutApplication:

  • Port its layout to a standalone UI widget + our Wdg self-layouting pattern
  • Port it to our KoDialog class
  • Fix the dialog being chopped half-way in the close button in Linux and macOS by applying KoDialog's minimum size management and margins
  • Remove the manual setup as much as possible in favor of the UI widget above and KoDialog's automated button management
  • Fix potential crashes with missing resources by following the QTextStream + split/join approach
    • this was done for 3rdparty pane only previously
    • it also allows for a more holistic management of the string pieces, we don't need to chop() lists' ends anymore
