You're right, I really don't like the workspace-thing in eclipse.

But when it's about teamwork, there are some unclear things: In which 
project-folder to store a patch/file that you receive? In which 
project-folder to store the message-history of chatting with a specific user? 
Where to start when resolving relative file-names?  etc. etc.

Until those questions are answered and the result implemented, we can allow 
the user to choose a folder that he wants to teamwork on(the 
teamwork-workspace folder). That could either be a project-folder(as it in 
the beginning was thought to be, the user could right-click the project and 
say "Start teamwork") or for example the directory on disk that contains 
kdelibs, kdevplatform, kdevelop, etc. so you could teamwork across all of 
them at a time.

We can think about making that more elegant once the more basic 
integration-problems are solved.

It's not like the user has to configure a workspace, but instead he will have 
an implicit teamwork-workspace that is used when he says "teamwork on this
