It looks like in SVN HEAD, it's Settings -> Konfigure KDevelop ->

Well, it does not look like I'd like.

1. It's not possible to say that in

   namespace boost { namespace grammar {

KDevelop should not break second namespace to a new line.

2. If I type the above and type "Enter", cursor is positioned at column 0,
not indented. 

3. I can configure Kate to insert 4 space characters when typing Tab, but
that's not quite enough. Say, in emacs, if I type

   class Foo : public Base1,
       public Base2

and type type on the second line, both "public" are aligned:

   class Foo : public Base1,
               public Base2

How do I get the same effect in KDevelop? In KDevelop, I get:

   class A : public B1,
                    public B2

and there's no option to configure it that I see.
