As an independent user I must say that I think you are not correct.
kdevelop is not a commercial product and its developers are more devoted to 
the principles of the best SW than to earning money.

This means that they go in the way of developing the best they can in the time 
they have.

Obviously, redesign of new better features is more importand than building 
system, which may exist meanwhile with CMake (which is not so bad!).

This is the price you pay for working with "open" SW. As for me - I am ready 
to pay it. If you are not - you always have a choice of Visula Studio, which I 
personnaly will never choose to work with....:-)

As for 3.5.5 and 4.1 coexistance - yes, I have both running and you can find 
the descriptioin I did it in the list archive. But my case is in Fedora.
