One feature that I use a lot is to have kDebug() << "foo: '" << bar "'\n";
which prints the bar variable with single quotes around it.  In KWord I work 
with text a lot and having the _exact_ text on screen is very important.
With qDebug() it adds spaces automatically; which makes the above impractical 
or impossible.

Dropping the endl part would be welcomed, though.
