I'd say as long as KDE has an image viewer which works at least as good as
KView, and is maintained, everything's alright. IMHO it does not make any
difference at all whether you take over kview or remove it and instead import
your own project as long as I can view images as I used to, and as long as
there is somebody who is willing to fix bugs in the program.
