In general we only put implicitly generic stuff in kdevplatform and so far
we've put more specific plugins, mostly related to C++ development in

A question we could discuss is whether Plasmate will depend on KDevelop.
For example, QtHelp plugin is in KDevelop.
I wouldn't mind having KDE/Plasma specific plugins in KDevelop. In fact we
already have some. I would like to make sure they make sense without
Plasmate though, there's where I'd draw the line.
