I started adding Objective-C support to KDevelop 1.x 5 years ago. I think the 
option on the 'new class' dialog might be about the only thing left of it. 
Objective-C isn't too difficult to parse, but it doesn't fit well with C/C++ 
features like code completion or use of automake. So a separate plugin might 
be the best idea.
