... but do we really want to configure each file for use in kate(-part), vi, 
Emacs and others? I prefer vi and kate and have no clue of emacs.

I realize that the only way to really enforce at least the same tab-width in a 
file is to add those mode-lines. The ones who use vi(m) will sooner or later 
add a vi-modeline anyway as it seems to be a consence of all kdevelop-coders 
that tabs stop at every 4th char. (And this is really annoying) :)

So, my proposal is to publish a wiki-page where some (the ones used in 
kdevelop) kate-modelines and their counterparts are listed.
