iDistributedVersionControl's interface is differ than iBasic's. See add 
function, for example: I don't need repository argument, like in CVS.
For first approuch see my previous letter with patch.
The idea for second is to move name(), createImportMetaWidget() and 
maybe some more functions to another class. And both 
idistributedversioncontrol and ibasic can inherite from this class. As I 
understand only these functions are used in KDevelop to initialize VCS
