I don't see how the proposed changes would break up the kDebug calls. 
Sure, they will look different (two space sometimes instead of one, and 
extra quotes), but unless the developer used some kind of filtering 
program that depends on the exact output, for the human eye, this 
shouldn't be a big problem.
And removing the extra << endl could be done in one go throughout the 
code. Actually here is the only issue, about how to deal with:
kDebug() << "somestring";
kDebug() << "anotherstring" << endl;
if such case exists at all. IIRC kDebug already warns you about missing 

I'm all for it, as it would really make things easier, especially this 
endl stuff.
