Hi Roberto,

I don't think this is a good idea, BUT currently this is probably a reasonable 

I believe that formatting text is an editor function. Locating astyle at the 
editor end would be a good idea.

We need to solve the "sliding breakpoint" problem where someone adds or 
removes lines from a file before a breakpoint. This leaves the display 
showing the breapoint in a different position to the breakpoint set in gdb. 
Having the text manipulated in several different places in kdevelop doesn't 
help us with this problem.

Note this problem isn't a reason in itself to move astyle to the editor but 
does illustrate problems with having the text manipulated in several places.
