UI to search for buddies and activities using Gadget

This ticket is to track Gadget integration in sugar.

See http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Gadget and related pages for more information about Gadget.

Gadget offers API [1] to search:

- buddies by properties

- buddies by alias

- activities by participants

- activities by properties (for example, all the activities of type Write)

Not sure we should offer UI for all type of searches though.

Current mesh view search is basically a filter on already displayed buddies/activities. The big difference here is that searches are performed on the *server* side. So it will return new buddies/activities which stay alive while the search result (called "view") is not closed. While a view is open, new buddies/activities can be added or removed and Gadget will inform us about changes.

See also #7545 about random requests integration.
