it is possible to disable them, altough it doesn't make much sense 
- other editors can be used inside KDevelop
- Katepart might change its shortcuts in the future.

Of course if something is desperately needed by KDevelop it is possible 
to check for shortcuts on every KPart loading and disable those there 
are used by KDevelop, but with the completely plugin based 
architecture, this is not so nice/easy. For example if the debugger 
plugin disabled F8 in other places, and another plugin will also try to 
disable F8, this will be unpredictable and inconsistent for the user, 
depending on the configured profile.

I have no idea where are the bugs, but at least the second one I wrote 
looks to be a KDevelop issue. I will post the testcases later (they all 
are about debugging kdewebdev/quanta).
