As I have almost zero experience with such, I couldn't tell you :-). I 
wouldn't be willing to bet that there aren't people writing code in 
not-English, however.

The point is that using Latin letters raises a 'how will this work in 
other languages?' concern for me. I'd feel more comfortable with such a 
scheme if we had input from a few folks using KDevelop in e.g. Russian 
and Chinese/Japanese/Korean (i.e. Cyrillic keyboard users and 
logographic language users).
