Bug ID: 417654
           Summary: use Qt docks instead of custom-made sidebars
           Product: kate
           Version: Git
          Platform: Other
                OS: Linux
            Status: REPORTED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: application
  Target Milestone: ---

Kate (and kdevelop) currently uses KMultiTabBar-based sidebars which don't
behave like normal docks and suffer from several issues:

* they cannot be dragged&dropped to detach, attach, move left/right/up/down;
instead, they have context menu specifying their position;
* detached docks don't repaint (with non-compositing WM at least), which might
be a separate bug;
* they use (HIG-questionable?) vertically rotated text for side areas;

The wish is to move to standard Qt docks as used in other apps such as
Paraview, Krita, FreeCAD and numerous others.
