Projects and Sessions are relatively complicated to set up.
For that reason using Filesystem view should be considered as an important
feature: Currently I use for web stuff where I don't have setup a
project Quanta3.
Actually I have never tried KDevelop4 for that, but not having a
possibility to create new files
would be a show stopper for me.
