xfce4-popup-dict added in SVN r3777.

Calling it without any arguments opens the main window, by specifying
the command line argument -t or --text-field the text entry field in
the panel(if shown) gets the input focus.

Maybe I put some bugs into the code, so feel free to test it and report
anything you'll notice.

Btw, thanks Mike to pointing me to the windowlist plugin code, I used
much of it which saved me a lot of work.
