Great list Zack.  I noticed that we some of the things that people are asking 
for are at least partially implemented in kdevelop.  Here we go...

Implemented this for KDevelop 3.4.  It can be configured so that all C++ 
source/header files are opened automatically in split mode.  Either vertical 
or horizontal.  What's more both of the views are kept in sync when

A lot of the other things you listed would probably need an enhanced embedded 
konsole part.  When I use KDevelop I always have the embedded konsole up for 
tasks that KDevelop doesn't do very well.  

Perhaps it would make sense to have some kind of KDevelop enhanced shell that 
would allow for things like easily opening files in the current instance of 
KDevelop via the embedded konsole.

Either way, I'm glad we're having this discussion, because I really feel that 
improving KDevelop and our development tools in general could lead to more 
interest and more developers.
