Ralf, all, 
qtunit ( http://www.theleaf.be/projects/qtunit/index.html ) is a unit
testing framework. Unit testing is a method of instant testing of 
isolated (encapsulated) parts of a program, i.e. it makes most sense
with software projects that follow the OO paradigm and use "methods".
It has recently become popular again as an important part of "extreme
programming" or XP ( http://www.extremeprogramming.org/ ). 

qtunit is a programm that supports the organization, development and
execution of these tests. 

XP would be better supported in OpenSource projects if there were
better tools that enable some of the necessary XP practices, e.g. pair
programming. Nevertheless, most of the recommended XP practices are
already followed by all OS projects inherently. The XP concept is quite
interesting from a M point of view for commercial software development.

We should probably contact the authors of qtunit and ask them whether
they want to support a part for KDevelop, integration shouldnt be too
difficult. wrap a factory around it and load the part :-)
