Sorry, but your entire point seems to be that you're "The User" and noone else 
is, although this mailing list is full of users (I am one, and everyone else 
who participated in this discussion is as well).

Your opinon is heard, but this useless rant didn't help to underline any 
problem specifically.

No IDE is perfect, and neither will be KDevelop. Some of the things you 
mentioned are design-decisions that had to be done based on some tradeoff. 
Others are either little bugs, or things that may still change at any point in 
time, and it's beyond my why you send them to us in a huge list.

Your most common argument seems to be "Every other IDE", and that's an 
argument I'm not interested in. The path of lowest resistance is not always 
the best one. Either tell us _why_ the alternative is better, or you don't 
need to tell it at all.

Ok, I will argue about 1 point: The Editor-menu is a waste of space? The 
opposite is the case. All of the menus that it hides are a waste of space, and 
using this editor-menu we can reduce that waste to 1 item instead of 3 items.

Greetings, David
