No. In 3.4, KMDI is finally gone.

In 3.4 final (don't remember if we fixed this before RC2 was tagged) you can
rightclick the tabbutton and tell it to move to either of the other two
sides. KDevelop will remember where you want the toolview and place it on
that side in the future.

I largely agree with you.. there are a number of tabs that often don't do
much. A few points though:
# One thing you can do to reduce the space taken by the toolview buttons is to
have them only show their icon, and not their text (or just the text). This
is in the UI settings.
# The 'Application' tab is used for any stdout output from an executed
application. It's optionally used by the 'Tools' plugin when a user wants to
see the output of some external tool. It is also used by KDevelop when
running some external tools. (Just to point out it's not useless ;) )
