yeah, I'm concerned that e.V won't be seen as representative of actual kdelibs 
contributors. I'm not sure what the reality actually is, but appearances are 
important in these things. no point in a vote unless people will respect it.

we already have a .vim file to make kdelibs style easy. :) I'm not sure what
