Wow, I wish the kdevelop team would wither make kdevelop4 work before throwing out support for kdevelop3. This is highly disappointing.
I and my team have been using kdevelop3 for a rather large in-house project (about 310k lines of code) and kdevelop4 breaks a LOT of stuff. I have developers who range from seasoned developers to fresh out of grad school - Jonathon Thomas' recommendation of switching to radically different development tools (with completely different workflows, I might add) simply isn't practical, logistically or otherwise when you have project deadlines to keep.

Would it be against the Ubuntu policy to keep kdevelop3 in the universe
or metaverse repository? I can easily point out projects of those that
are not actively maintained.

Our solution right now is to installed custom .deb packages for
kdevelop3 in Karmic, or keep Jaunty or switch to Debian.
