In general you can add a new project template rather easily.
Indeed there are some non-KDE/-Qt project templates and Gideon could be 
used as a very general developing framework. I think that was one goal 
of Gideon :-).

Yup, removing is still not implemented (except removing a file).
I will pick up this item these days. Remember: Gideon is in "alpha" 
state :-).

Yes, it's cool, but there are some things which have to be changed so 
that it's more supportive.
I think it's a custom widget (Matthias Hölzer-Klüpfel is the author)
