But KDevelop has nothing to do with the Alt+Tab switching of top-level
windows. Thats something your windowmanager has to do.

Kate doesn't expose the region/folding AFAIK, so you should first get
the kate devs to do that, then we can talk about kdevelop supporting
some intelligent folding.

Yes, thats kate stuff.

What I'm saying is when you hit Ctrl+space after that , it should show
you the argument hints again, eventually together with the
code-completion. And if that doesn't happen right now, thats a bug.
