No, that wouldn't work... at least not as well as my suggestion. How 
does KDevelop know which settings you want applied globally? If you have 
a project with many settings you *want* different than the global ones, 
but need to change one global setting, you can't. A mode that would flip 
you to editing global settings would allow this.

Or, for that matter, you could do both.
