Yes, the problem toolview should get a UI overhaul to make it easier. Maybe 
even filtering to be able to hide some severities or similar.

No, you should use master, esp. for this feature as there where some changes 
in master and 4.1 is closed for feature additions.

But you can just install kate from git and decrease the language dependency in 
your KDevplatform/KDevelop clones to 4.4.


You'll have to symlink the MovingRange headers and the katepart libraries to 
/usr/ but I can help you with this.

Otherwise installing KDE 4.5.2 might be easier and much better (doesn't your 
distro have backports?).
