IIRC that was part of the settings folder in lib/ which got nuked. I
just had a look, it seems to be feasible and a bit easier to use than
the kde3 one.

So I guess the widget from that should be put into

Dukju: please fetch the lib/settings directory in kdevelop from revision
641348 and use the env-widget from there, it should be fully functional
and uses model/view for editing.

IMHO thats not right. At least not if we want to allow to have multiple
run/debug setups for each project. Then you'll also want to have
different environment for each of them. So you'd also need a different
environment setting for the build process.
