Project configuration files

Hi list,
Some time ago I managed to get the cmake manager configuration to work good
enough but in a tricky way. Now it is not working anymore and I have decided
to hack on it a little bit because I think it should be "rock stable".

The first problem I have is that I need some of the information in the
config files to parse the project properly (e.g. you can set your preferred
cmake installation and so).
This is a problem because, AFAIK, I only have access to the
KDevelop::IProject::projectConfiguration() method from the manager, which is
the <projectdir>/<project>.kdev4 file, and I don't want to get it modified
(I am having it and it sucks). I would like to have access to the
<projectdir/.kdev4/config file so that I could configure the project freely.

The second problem is that I don't have access to the shared config instance
from the ProjectKCModule and the KCModule interface is useful, but not
powerful enough I think (I would like some values to be in the config files
that are deducted from the UI).

Maybe I am taking a bad approach to the problem. If so, please tell me.
