Doesn't matter that much ;) See my other responds.
I'd use 4 spaces though :)

Yes, I do like the feature :) But I have some suggestions ;)
ProjectViews would be helpful even in non-project mode. The functionality is
not much dependant on project. So I'd wish to see it a global plugin
with separate project views for global mode.
Also the functionality it provides can be IMHO merged with file list
plugin. The toolbar could go then to a file list view. This way we could
group similar tasks like maintaining the list of opened files (filelist) and 
saving/restoring this list (projectviews). What do you think?

PS: looks like you've used kdevelop plugin template. Is it ok? Does it need
smth to be added?
