Right, the sad truth though is that I don't read all commit messages nor do I 
remember all details from those that I read.

Sure, but we thankfully have a big userbase that use kdevelop master and thus 
make sure the quality of it stays good. Personally, I think giving those (and 
your fellow developers) a heads up on how to use some new feature is a good 

Furthermore, could you comment on my other points? Do you agree, that the 
current status is sub-optimal for most users, and that this new feature should 
not be enabled by default?
