Many dataengines return data as series of items: like rss, microblog and tasks, and they do in different ways, rss has a list of Data in a single key, microblog has an item per key, tasks has an item per source.

Proposed Solution

In Plasma2 dataengine has a setModel method, that can associate a QAbstractItemModel instance to a Source. Affected dataengines should be ported as well as plamoids that are using them.
