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 ;) )
