Yes of course it needs an overhaul. It mainly needs a little work on the 
ui-files, one or two labels filled, and some stuff should probably go out of 
the tab into some configuration-dialog or sub-dialogs, but those didn't exist 
when it was created. I don't know whether there is a usable 
configuration-system now. 

Then it needs some support from kdevplatform to signalize that a new message 
has arrived.

I don't know though why it's unusable though.

The plugin was designed when kdevelop was a one-project application, it relies 
on having one central folder where to save patches, message-logs, etc., and 
from where to relatively search for the files of reference-messages and 

When partially porting it so it works with multi-project, I renamed the 
project-folder to workspace-folder because workspace is what fits the name 
best. A space where you "teamwork". It could contain multiple projects, so 
you can teamwork on all of them. We can think about a way to make it work 
with all open projects, by using some kind of a "virtual workspace" or
