Agreed, having the whole workflow in one program without distractions
is easier and faster. I'll definitely focus on achieving this in the

Maybe menu actions aren't the best place, but I still think there
should be some KDE-specific shortcuts, primarily for KDE SVN. Part of
the workflow is also searching for the project's repository. This,
however, raises the question of where to get that shortcuts.

Perhaps an additional (non-pure) virtual function for plugins to
specify special servers? A plugin-level serch function? KNewStuff? If
none of these seems feasible or logical, there's always the fallback
of the user putting in the full path.
