We just had a bugreport about kdev3 run stuff and its inconvenience
when running debug and optimized versions of your app. I'm wondering
wether anybody thought about that yet? In particular I hope we will
allow not only specifying executables, but also just picking targets
from the project tree to execute. In that case there needs to be a way
to define which builddirectory should be used to find the executable
from the target and then deduce the actual executable file with that

So when creating a debug run configuration you specify target "kdevelop"
and the debug-builddir and then you can just copy that configuration and
s/debug-builddir/release-builddir/ and be done.

Just something to consider I think.
