Ok. Yes we shouldn't forget the Kaplan guys. I do apologize to them 
but I've been too busy to look at their project. But I plan to make 
KMainWin a KPart very soon, and hopefully they'll like that. I will 
definitely send a patch of that to khz also, and listen to any feed 
back he gives me very carefully.

BTW about the name Kontact, the main problem with it is that the 
domain is taken by someone who is asking quite a lot of 
money for it. But I negotiated it down a bit to $US333 and have made 
a payment to buy the name, hopefully ownership rights will be 
transferred to me soon.

In which case in a sign of good will you a free to have the name, just 
ask for it and I will transfer ownership to you (for free).

But if you want it please tell me sooner rather than later as 
otherwise I might use it myself :-)
