IMHO this a nogo:
It would be a give-in that KDE doesn't deliver a usefull framework. Which 
is/should not be true. After all it is the mission of KDE to deliver _the_ 
environment, isn't it? For our (free) desktop. And so our tasks. Such as 
developing. Thus also developing environments.

My greatest wish for KDevelop:
Please go on your choosen road and enhance the general framework, then marry 
it with virtual desktops (aka kwin) and the session manager. That would be 
the perfect solution in my eyes. :)
