I would like to see KolourPaint become an official part of KDE.  KolourPaint 
1.0 "Seagull" (stable) was recently released (see

KolourPaint is actively developed and provides functionality that ordinary 
users need but are not found together in any other KDE paint programs:

- full undo/redo support
- reliable saving
- transparent image editing
- tools like line, pen, eraser, brush, fill, colour picker, colour eraser, 
spraycan, rectangle, polygon, ellipse, curve, text
- flexible selection support (freeform, rectangular and elliptical shapes; 
background subtraction with a unique "Colour Similarity" feature)
- image editing abilities (scale, rotate, skew, invert colours, manual & 
automatic cropping...)

KolourPaint provides the functionality required by the average user for 
everyday tasks like drawing simple diagrams/logos/icons and editing 

If there are no major objections, I will ask sysadmin at to do the move.
