Generally some improvements to our VCS such that it can be rapidly used would 
be a good idea I think. I.e. proper keyboard integration, some way to support 
"-p" switch for git add,reset,checkout etc, ...

We've talked about this on the last meeting in Randa and at least Adymo and me 
don't use KDevelop for VCS stuff because it's not as fast/unintrusive to use 
as git from the commandline
