Maybe it's a good idea to send an email do plasma-devel so others can also
their opinions on this one. I didn't take a look on Vng so I can't argue
very much. I'm just afraid that in the end we have to reimplement a lot of
things that are already in Vng....

Hmmm...another idea would be to have an "Add File To Project" like Kile and
other editors have. This way the "new files situation" is solved. Regarding
that are already being tracked, we should just add them all and then commit
when the auto save interval times out. If the user wants to put a message in
his commit, we can have a "Save With Description" option or something like

But again, let's see what ideas people on plasma-devel have ;)

The preview tab may work and I agree that maybe keeping the previewer open
the time may waste screen space...
