It's possible. (Debatable if it should be, but it is.)

From cmakeqt3app.kdevtemplate:

Command=cmake ./ -GKDevelop3

From a quick glance at the code it seems it is only possible to issue ONE such 
command. If a .kdevtemplate file has more than one 'finishcmd' entry, I think 
the last will be the one executed.
