It is a use-case for an IDE. KDevelop has a lot of goodies over a simple 
editor, which are:
- Code-navigation, code-completion(the main points for me)
- Documentation-viewer
- Make-output parser with shortcuts
- Debugger

There is only one component that would not be needed in such a case: The 

Also allowing to use exactly the goodies that people want, without much setup, 
and allowing a slow transition from konsole to kdevelop, would be another big 
advantage over eclipse(At least as far as I know).

We should allow them accessing the goodies they need, without breaking their 
already existing workflow(even if it is ./buildMyStuff).

It would be ok creating a generic project in my exercises directory. 

Still I'd like to see support for custom commands in the build-list at some 
point, just for flexibility.(Think of kdesvn-build, dpkg-build, 
checkinstall, ...)
