I agree. We have already "lost" much time by maintaining 2 branches. I think 
just another branch would be a big mistake in the long run. And as Falk already
said, KDevelop 1.1 _will_ run on KDE2 (with kde1 libs). Ralf, you can't port
KDevelop1.1 to KDE2 in only a few weeks because the KDE2 API is changing every
week. You have to maintain this version for the next months until the KDE2
release. :-(  In my opinion we should concentrate our effort only on
