[Development] Moving JP2 imageformat from qt-solutions to qtimageformats

I do. Qt is by nature a cross platform framework, limiting support for ICNS files only to OS X doesn't really make sense.

What if you want to create a cross platform icon editor or some other app that deals with image files? Or reuse your OS X icon(s) on Windows and other platforms, saving time and space not having to create multiple versions of everything? If you don't want to build the ICNS plugin, simply disable it when you configure qtimageformats. It's a common and well known format and it should be supported on all platforms Qt supports, just as ICO is supported on OS X, Linux and others.

I could understand refusing to include it in QtCore, but we're talking about QtImageFormats here, the perfect place where something like this belongs.
