When dragging a window to a corner the outline effect instantly appears with no smooth fade in effect. There should be a fade in and out for that effect.

Reproducible: Always

The commit below fixes this as it's now a "normal" window and by that the fade effect kicks in.

    Split Outline in a composited and non-composited part
    The non-composited part handles the showWithX case with the four small
    windows. The composited part shows a translucent QWidget with the
    FrameSvg as done by the selection effect frame.
    Outline connects to the Compositor toggled signal to switch the mode if
    compositing gets suspended/resumed. This works fine also in the case that
    the switch happens while the outline is shown. To support this Outline
    is now a QObject and created with Workspace as a parent.
    Given that the Outline handles both cases by itself, the outline effect
    is no longer needed and is dropped together with all the hooks into the
    effect system.
