This patch adds an ellipsis to the search labels in KPluginSelector (and the elements that call for it, e.g. KWin Scripts).

- R295:24ba84914a84: [kcmutils] Add ellipsis to search labels in KPluginSelector
a) not always - there's very little nuance here, and there's nothing to be gained by adding the word plugins (except for reinforcing that the word is a verb and that it's transitive), that's why we don't use "Type to"... besides, if we did make it explicit, we'd have to use "Search applications, places, actions etc." in kicker, "Search clipboard contents" in clipboard etc.
b) "search" is a simpler and far less restrictive idea than "search plugins" in whatever language we're talking about or in, it's a single idea that doesn't call for a direct object and doubles as a noun (検索, Suche, Busca etc.)
I think this is fine. The search field doesn't have to specify what it's going to be searching in if it's totally obvious, as it is here. This also makes it consistent with other similar instances of list-with-search-field-on-top, as in the Effects KCM.
