No. There is no defined structure other than what you see in the 
kdevelop4.kdev4 file. Please use that as an example. Discussion for this 
change, and many others that will be taking place soon. happened on IRC. It 
would help if you could be there more often.

The only thing that should go in the main project file is stuff that is 
sharable between developers. All other local settings (continuing to use 
kdevelop4 as an example) will go in a dot-directory (so that it's hidden by 
default, at least on linux) with the same name as the project file.
