Thanks, nice to hear it also works elsewhere rather than just Works For Me ;-)

It's written to be used/tested and to be(come) part of Kate, so if I can 
put/push things there so it's picked up easier (and by more people), then moving 
that way (with optional compilation and so) is fine by me :-)

At least, that is assuming that it can be arranged that I can somehow still 
carry on (hopefully fast paced) development (in coming weeks) in an easy way, 
i.e. with some fairly discretionary "commit and push" ability (on plugin code).  
Whether we are then talking about master or (more likely) some other 
(lspclient?) branch.  I am not up to specs on applied development practices 
(yet) in such regard ... And suffice it to say I don't have any such access to 
kate.git at this time ;-).
