  Yes, they do make life a bit more bearable but aren't the ultimate solution either, at least not on Mac. The other day I had to work my way through the entire list to set a whole bunch of positive priorities (which I never set) to 0 or -1 because C, C++ and ObjC++ and related files kept being treated as anything but the correct format in KDevelop. Not just inappropriate C-like formats (Ansi C89, SystemC, GCCExtensions) but also completely wrong formats (source code being treated as "Makefile" or vice-versa).
  The UI is REALLY not suitable for that kind of mass editing... at the very least it could let the "Delete" button act in some kind of way on built-in formats (hide from list, and then use some Mod-Click to unhide all, a bit like how one can treat system notifications).
