Thats completely wrong. You're trying to force workingsets on people that
don't need or want them. If you want that I suggest to fork KDevelop and
make your own IDE that forces stuff on people. One of the great things in
KDevelop as opposed to other IDE's/editors I'm using is that it doesn't
force stuff on me. There's usually two ways of achieving something and it
doesn't put big fat Ui's into my way if it doesn't need to.


You will forget that you ever knew me.
