[kwin] Streamline Comment fields of KCMs

This patch applies a common language and type-setting to the
systemsettings modules in kwin.

- The comment field might repeat the name, or give more detail about the
specific settings on this page, this makes sense with how
systemsettings and kcmshell present it
- Mentioning the words settings, configure, options, etc. is avoided --
it is clear from the context that these are settings and options.
- Title-case throughout in line with human interface guidelines, see
- The comment ends up being the title, so the
- tech slang is avoided as much as possible, but left in where really
- I've left the Name field "mostly untouched", as that one is key for
the user to find the right module in systemsettings' icon view and in
the sidebars

The most prominent change is "Compositor" to "Graphics Compositor" (in
the Title field). This is more like a "suggestion", if you don't like
it, I'll take it out again. Reasoning: "Compositor" is a very technical
term, people who know graphics might recognize it. Others might not
understand that "composite" is about graphics -- hence the
specialization. Please enter the commit message for your changes. Lines starting
