However, which language you use Eclipse for does not matter if it comes
to core components such as the dockviews/toolbars/editor area. While
Eclipse might not be the wholy grail it does get some things right and
being able to maximize the editor across the complete mainwindow is
definetly one - especially when deciding to quick-fix a bug while
being in a debug-session.

The point here was not maximizing the kdevelop window, but only the
editor area.

BTW: In eclipse this is Ctrl+M and maximized whatever the  active part
is (editor or toolview).
