Well, this feature is there for every other non-kdevelop generated application
(e.g. kapptemplate's). I'm not sure why the option is there anyway - I'd 
rather include all files. If kdevelop provides that feature, it should make 
sure it's implemented properly - e.g. by implementing am_edit support for a 
KDE_OPTIONS = noautodist line :)
