We barely got the code ported to Qt4 I guess we ran out of power to update the 
developer docs :).

I would prefer updating the documentation instead of dropping it completely.

 -> libkdchart - charts library developed and maintained by KDAB - we keep a 
copy of it to make building easier so we should not change it like our own 
 -> libkgpgfile - GPG encryption support developed by Thomas
 -> kmymoney - a kind of 'src' of other projects - the application and it's 
	-->> mymoney - base classes - business logic only developed by Thomas
        -->> widgets - UI - widgets
        -->> dialogs - UI - dialogs
        -->> views - UI - the different 'documents' of the application
        -->> converter - import/export stuff
        -->> plugins - framework and various implementations 
        -->> wizards - UI - wizards used by the application
        -->> reports

You can see by looking at the code that there is no single convention that is 
applied everywhere since the code has a long history. But a a guideline I 
would look ad the mymoney* classes for business logic and the widgets for UI 
naming conventions.
