You could experiment with this. Warning - backup your project first, this 
will probably make a mess.

Exit kdevelop. then copy the files into wherever in the directory tree you 
want them. Delete the current  project file and generate a new one (either 
use kdevelop1.3 or Alexander Kuit's script). Problem is that this is a custom 
project if you use kdevelop1.3. Tweak that so it isn't - you'll have to 
grunge around in the projectfile to do this. Then fireup kdevelop and 
regenerate the (In RFV use the RMB on the top directory)

I don't hold out much hope that this will work, but it'll be interesting to 
see what happens. It could be made to work.

Next step - delete this and restore from backup :-)

It's the same, but with a little bit more :-)
