      Hi everybody,

      At some point, there were "plugins" to come with Kate / KDE3. They are 
no longer in my OpenSuse 11.1 distribution. Might be because I had to 
select and install the software myself ... But I think that I saw them when 
I used Trinity. Among them, there was one, I call it the "horizontal tabs", 
which allowed to present the files as tabs, like this excellent Notepad 
from the Windows world.

       In the case of a contextual menu to a "manual sorting", click-drag 
and drop in the file list may be easier to implement than the use of any 
keys ... And this method may be applicable in the case of this so called 
module "horizontal tabs" quoted above. Without this module, I can not check 
if it respects the sort order in the session configuration file 
~/.kde/ ... / ... .katesession.
