In case you are right and _really_ nobody is using Koboodle's KPart
functionality I wouldn't see a big benefit in re-adding it.

Having Kaboodle _and_ Noatun would mean having to maintain both of them.

If Noatun can take over and replace kaboodle (at least until somebody
with enough time wants to maintain kaboodle) then we could concentrate
on Noatun for now: IMO it is better to have one app maintained
sufficiently than two apps suffering from poor maintanance due to lack
of time.

Just my 2 pence.  :-)
