User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:10.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/10.0.1
Build Identifier: 

Searches often take a while to perform. During that time, the search results area just shows nothing. Therefore users can't tell if it's still searching or if there where no results. Also often the results are not all shown at the same time but consecutively. all this makes for a lot of confusion.

Therefore we need an indicator that a search is going on.
Suggestion: Display our wait spinner next to the search box while a search is being performed.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open anything that allows to search
2. Enter a search term
Actual Results:  
The results area is empty until something is found (or remains empty if nothing is found).

Expected Results:  
The user is made aware that the search is still happening.

Add signal finishedListingChanged to MetadataModel so that we can stop
the busy indicator in ViewSearch.qml when the nepomuk query finishes.
