i disagree:
kdevelop "writes" code and/or supplies templates - if this templates are
under the gpl no one can use it with non gpl software because it would
derived work

so it should be written somewhere that the generated code isn't
by the gpl - like my example with bison:

/* As a special exception, when this file is copied by Bison into a
   Bison output file, you may use that output file without restriction.
   This special exception was added by the Free Software Foundation
   in version 1.24 of Bison.  */
