grep: where are you? I can't find the find+grep integration anywhere 
:-(. (Seems I also have a broken build ATM so I can't even start 
kdevelop to go see if I'm merely blind.)

ctags: I miss this *most* from 3.x. For quick navigation, it was 
indispensable. Either I missed the "scan my entire project" button for 
Quick Open, or it only covers the open files or current folder or 
something. But it only shows a fraction of the functions in my whole 

file tree: I'd really like this back, please :-). I've been making do, 
more or less, with the project view, but that adds several levels of 
indentation to all files, so that I have to make it wider just to read 
the file names.

MEMORY USAGE has gotten *waaay* out of hand. The newfangled code parsing 
stuff is shiny, but needs 1.4 GB for *three files opened*?! To quote Ed 
Harris*, "Gentlemen, that's unacceptable". I've already had to switch 
computers because of /3.x/'s memory hogging... I thought Linux was 
supposed to disobey Wirth's Corollary :-).

I want to vote for a Conservative Democrat. Too bad they're about as 
rare as an Honest Politician. Maybe I'll get lucky and someone will come 
along that's both.
