New "Find My Mouse" effect "Spotlight"

Jin Liu requested to merge genericity/kwin:spotlight-effect into master


It can be activated by quickly moving the mouse around for one second (just like in Shake Cursor). And it automatically deactivates after 2 seconds.

You can select in KCM an alternative style "Crosshair": Screencast_20240120_115837


@vladz suggested using shader (SDF) instead of texture, but I'm unfamiliar with shaders, so maybe replace the current implementation later. (I'm happy with the performance at the moment, though.)

Maybe I should also copy keyboard-based activation from Track Mouse. Also, the "press Ctrl twice quickly" activation method from Windows Powertoys seems neat.
