I've contacted the QxRunner author to check if his library is reusable -> 

Depending on this a substantial amount of work could be saved, so my planning 
will have to wait a little.

I find it hard to guess the amount of effort required for the self-configuring 
bussiness. Since parts of it might be useful for kdevelop4 in other areas a 
more generic approach seems ok.

Ideally writing a test should go like this:
1. Create stub through template wizard
2. Implement test cases
3. Click run button
4. Show test run result [error in case of compilation problem]

Ie autobuild. However I dont know enough yet about the kdevelop4 internals, so 
I'm asking: Is this do-able within a reasonable timespan?
