kdelibs/kate/* is the implementation of kdelibs/interfaces/ktexteditor, i.e. 
kdelibs/kate/* is completely private and you can change everything (as long 
as the interfaces are implemented). Of course, the KTextEditor intefaces 
cannot be changed, but that is not what you want to do as far as I 

PS: there also is ktexteditor-devel (at) kde.org
