Yeah, so the first step is to fix the support for importing them :)

Per app, I would say. The shortcut for kdevelop's "compile" action doesn't 
make sense in kmail :)

More precisely, I would like to use a kdevelop shortcut scheme that makes it 
shortcut-compatible with QtCreator (I set it up locally like that), and that 
shouldn't affect shortcuts in other KDE applications.
