There must be some solution that works for every plugin. We cannot
have special-handling in KDevelop for each kate plugin.. also, the
restructuring should somewhat work for other editor-parts than kate
(for example okteta or something like that). Maybe we can use the old
mechanism for everything that is not covered by replaceXMLFile(). It
should be pretty fast if it only applies to few actions. Also, did you
do some profiling to find out _why_ it was so slow? Maybe it was
