  The plugin is progressing nicely. In fact, it's almost done and just a matter of polishing. I think it starts to be ready for testing.
  Actions items still include:
  - "Reload current document after execution": Currently not yet implemented, since I think I will run into issues with the KDirWatcher of KTextEditor. This could be a tricky one.
  - "Display in Pane" is not yet implemented. My current plan is that each run creates a new ToolView on the bottom, using a QTextEdit with fixed font that displays the output. However, how to close this? The only solution I can think of right now is to add a "Close" button.
  - The variables %{directory} etc all work, but currently cannot nicely be inserted via GUI. The drop-down buttons in the tool dialog are supposed to do this, but maybe there is even a more elegant way.
  - I would like to change %{directory} to %{CurrentDocument:Path} etc, so match the variables of QtCreator.
