[K12OSN] test childsplay packages

I build childsplay packages for K12LTSP 4.2 & the 4.4 beta.

"yum install childsplay" should install it and its dependancies.

I played around with it for a little while on a 4.4 beta server,
it feels faster and more stable than gcompris. Sound worked well
on a terminal to boot.

I don't have access to a k12LTSP 4.2.1 server at the moment. I'd
appreciate if someone can try it out and let me know if it works
or not.

The current package does not include a menu entry. You have to
fire up a terminal and type "childsplay" to get it to run. I'll
fix that shortly.

The pygame libraries that childsplay is built on also supports
some nifty games that could pass as being education-ish. I played
a few rounds of Pathological ;-) http://pathological.sourceforge.net/
Ran smooth as silk on my terminal and is trivial to package...
