I agree that kdevelop must centralize the editor actions, as otherwise, 
the toplevel menu would be crowded with kate menus.

But I would love to see that the kate part configuration pages are 
integrated into the kdevelop settings dialog, as seen
in kate application. That way I think the editor configuration would be 
more easy to find and you can remove that from the editor menu.
