Adam Treat and I will be maintaining code completion and we decided on IRC 
(adam and I, with agreement of alex dymo) to change the formatting to 
something we both agreed on, in addition to making the formatting consistent, 
since as Adam already pointed out to you, there were four copyright holders 
and about 12 different coding styles. discussion on kdevelop-devel is 
irrelevant as long as there is a discussion somewhere, so maybe you should 
join us in #kdevelop on freenode so you're in the loop.
