If someone is working on that, someone should do it properly. And the proper 
way is to make libdiff2 a proper lib and not part of something like kompare.

A hard KDevelop dependency on all of kdesdk at compile time is not nice. We 
currently have an implicit runtime dependency on kate (which can easily be 
compiled standalone) and an optional compiletime + runtime dependency on 
okteta and kompare.

But I want to keep it that way, i.e.: optional.

- make libdiff2 a proper standalone library
- release a first stable version (!important!)
- we'll port kdevelop
