yeah I remember

yeah that's cool :)

I know but it's not only for the apptemplates. It will happen everytime we
change something in the programming language support. We have way to many
(unmaintained) language support in out core base. I remember to pain porting
the *fortran* support when I introduced the CodeModel :-)

hmm, I'm not sure

I'M ALL FOR IT! we should try to keep our code base simple. Only maintainable
code should be part of the KDevelop core distribution. The other stuff should
be *supported* by KDevelop using KHotstuff and adv on the KDevelop website
