Actually, everything has full-screen mode, since it is a WM thing 
(unless it goes out of its way to avoid it). It just isn't "special" in 
most applications.

Actually, since it is a global WM shortcut, KDevelop can and will have 
it, whether it wants to or not, and AFAIK there is nothing you* can do 
about it.

(* "you" meaning "KDevelop, the application"... though you might get a 
'conflicting shortcut' warning. As a person, you can obviously argue 
against the change or even revert it.)

FWIW, I'm moderately opposed to this change as well.
