I wrote the Kate/Kwrite/Kdevelop Plugin. I recommend you to let the
server running all the time anyways (start it with X e.g.), since
processing phobos alone takes quite some time. If you power up the
editor you don't wanna wait a few minutes until DCD is done and can
answer the requests. Also, if you start multiple sessions, you want only
one server running (the K* Plugin won't start multiple servers anyways
because it has a fixed port).
