"following months" is a key term here, as there are still other things on my 
FLOSS desk that I want to reach DONE status before I concentrate more on 
this (e.g. https://frinring.wordpress.com/2016/09/27/adding-api-dox-generation-to-the-build-by-cmake-macros/).

At least already dumped the initial info into a first wiki page https://
community.kde.org/KDevelop/RemoteDevelopment so things can evolve from that. 

Personally I still need a better idea of the problem space, as my personal 
needs are rather vague so far, even less do I know the possible needs of 
others in all kind of settings.

So while David possibly is right that "usecases are very customized", I 
still have the hope that at least many are covered by some patterns, so 
could get better support in the UI. For the rest then some GUI-support-less 
solution would be still needed. But as I said above, I personally need a 
better idea of what is wanted and what is possible :) Also on the risk to in 
the end having to say "yes, maintaining a solution is be close to 
impossible". So a minimum gain might be to at least have learned more about 
all involved tools :)
