           Summary: Associate filename patterns with configs (ASCII
           Product: kst
           Version: 2.0.0_devel
          Platform: unspecified
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kst at kde.org
        ReportedBy: nicolas.brisset at eurocopter.com

Version:           2.0.0_devel (using unspecified)
Compiler:          gcc 4.4.1 
OS:                Linux

This is probably a post-2.0.0 feature, at least it is not blocking but rather
The idea would be to have more than one default config for the ASCII
datasource.  We would use filename patterns as key to look up the rest of the
config parameters. The checkbox at the bottom of the ASCII config dialog to
"Apply these settings as default" would set the current config as absolute
default it the filename pattern is empty, otherwise as default for the current
filename pattern only. And the filename pattern lineedit ("Always accept files
matching") would turn into an editable combobox: selecting a pattern from the
list would set all other parameters in one shot. And this would of course be
used when reading a new file: the default settings for the first matching file
pattern would be used.
That is probably less work and more robust than automatic detection of the
format (which would be nice, of course) and could possibly make the lack of
automatic detection acceptable.
