Diclaimer: I am not a QtCreator, nor KDeveloper user, but: I have not
understood why there is any need for doing so much duplication in two
projects, really. Do you not have more or less similar goals in this
area ? Why not share some code ? It is not just about this parser
feature, but many others as well. It has been making me sad for years,
especially because it is still the way in this new Open Governance
model. :(
