I think we need to finish to hack the ktexteditor interface as soon as possible
because we got an exception this time, but we will perhaps not keep it for a
long time. The next big freeze will be in about 1 month, so we should try to
freeze the ktexteditor at that time.

And I thought it was easier to make kdevelop work with the kwrite in kdebase
first and then to hack the ktexteditor interface. But as you already hacked the
ktexteditor, perhaps it is easier to hack it right now.

Ok, so send me your patch, I will work on it, and I hope we will be able to
commit it soon.
