[Development] Request for new Playground Repo

Currently there is at least one API that is specific to BlackBerry that provides a wrapper for PPS that would be used in plugins supplied for Qt Location, as well as in Qt Systems.  A lot of BlackBerry information at the Qt API layer comes from PPS, so having this wrapper available without having to pull down a BlackBerry NDK, or "clone and own" (which has already been done) would be useful.

Essentially I'm trying to get something similar to the qt*extras modules already present in Qt.

Here's the reference for the one API that we'd immediately target for this repository: http://developer.blackberry.com/native/reference/cascades/bb__ppsobject.html
