And that automatic code formatting is very week compared to Emacs's, IMO.
That's one single issue that keeps me from using KDevelop, and when I
raised that issue in kdevelop-devel, it turned out nobody's interested in
fixing that.

And "static" source reformatter is as bad idea as could be. There should be
*one* reformatter, otherwise two reformatters will have slightly different
ideas about code layout.
