	the vendor (packager) is saved after the first usage so
	after a user enters there name it will keep using the last
	name they entered.  i kept this transparent because i did
	not feel like cluttering the app with more dialogs.

	unfortunately i forgot to remove the Options button.

	yes, you are correct here.  i am confused as to what i was
	fixing with your template fixes.  if you could please clarify	
	the differences between automoc and autoconf templates that
	would help...

	this is why open source will in the end win.  teamwork
	and constructive critisism are the best ways to make 
	software rock.  i would like to thankyou for your help
	and for working on KDevelop.  what you folks have done
	for linux/kde is AWESOME.
