There is also the "collapsing after insertion and deletion problem",
right? Bernd says he's fixed that in his version of kdevelop. Bernd,
can this be backported?

Yes, I have though about this. Let's define program states, like: 

"Kdevelop started", "Kdevelop running", "Project (loaded)", 
"Source View (opened)", "Browser (opened)", "Compiling (file)",
"Building (Make)", "Running (Program)", "Debugging", ...

Depending on the program state. things can be highlighted or not. I
will be happy to try and implement this.

Hmmm... a beast this is. I rather want to get the kate part integrated

John's alive, look at the ChangeLog, he's just decided to not talk to
us anymore, unless you port docViewMan to HEAD ;-)

Yes, it is very usable. I do also use the MDI tab mode quite a bit now
and it is also quite nice. Falk we have talked about a per file
splitter in the views (like M$ Studio has). You think that's possible
to do?
