But the existing konsole part already does this:-

   connect(part, SIGNAL(destroyed()), this, SLOT(partDestroyed()));

and then in partDestroyed():-

i.e. if you choose close in the konsole menu, the konsolepart is 
destroyed and the kdevelop plugin automatically re-activates it.

As you'll see the change simply causes the plugin to be hidden when the 
part is destroyed.... when you then click on the konsole tab, it gets 
activated again.

However - having said that - I only tested this using the IDEAI mode 
where the "lowerView()" call works and the part gets re-activated when 
the tab is re-opened. I assume a different workaround needs to be 
implemented to the various other kdevelop IDE modes.
(how can a plugin find out what mode the ide is running in)

Otherwise the "Close Konsole" option needs to be removed from the 
konsole part menu - which I believe would be difficult to do.

Surely having a "Close Konsole" menu option, that doesn't close the 
konsole is strange?
