Me too. Until today I didn't feel like digging up an appropriate template, fired up cmake-gui expecting it to have a similar feature set as the doxygen GUI (which it doesn't), and then finally thought I'd ask here.

I have too little experience with QtCreator to know if it can generate qmake or qbs files (qmake does have a project generation feature, IIRC). But "the" IDEs from "the other" desktop platforms (MSVC and Xcode) both allow you to create a project from scratch in the IDE, without need for hand-coding. It'd be nice if KDevelop had something similar for the most common project specification chores; it should certainly help people who have little to no experience with this aspect of software development. Maybe a nice GSoC project?
