Toolviews toolbars (luckily) not implemented as KMultiTabBar

Hi devs,

I wanted to ask you WHY you decided to implement the toolbars for the various tool views they way you did it.

Kate, as well as most of other KDE applications, use a different approach - avoiding your custom button-like design - by employing KMultiTabBar.

In fact KDevelop is the only application I’ve found using these button-like-toolbars, with the NICE result that that it DOES NOT show overlapping toolbar items on OSX, as described e.g. originally in [1] and for kate also in [2].
