I put this comment on the duplicate bug 53536, but I think it still applies here:

Integrating umbrello with kdevelop will be difficult, and premature. Currently kdevelop is specialized in C++ development on KDE platform (no suprise there). As such, it is very good, but umbrello generates code for a large number of languages. Until kdevelop is a general, non-language specific IDE, I dont see that it is worth doing this.

Instead, an 'interface' between kdevelop and umbrello already exists in the form of generated code. Furthermore, the new code generation system allows for some (minimal) editing of the code as desired in this item. Once the full round-tripping feature of umbrello is implemented, then the C++ code will serve fairly well as the interface between umberllo and kdevelop, and there is no further need to tie the 2 programs closer.

For all these reasons, I suggest that this wishlist item be changed to status of "wontfix" (or the equivalent appropriate status).
