Blah blah. This has nothing to do with working-sets, but with seeing a
list of currently open documents, that's all. It is stupid to have
such document-lists look different depending on occassion, and also
the "CTRL+Tab" list is ugly, and of reduced usefulnes. It doesn't show
the project or sub-path the file is part of, it appears in random
locations, it doesn't have a border. Of course one could hide elements
of the widget that are not relevant in the context.

I have reverted the change now.

Regarding a fork, yes that's not such a bad idea after all. There's
quite a few things that annoy me on KDevelop (one of which is your
permanent nagging, but there's even worse things).
