Thank you for the detailed response this time. _This_ makes it clear what kind 
of issues Konversation has and why it shouldn't be shoehorned in as an 
improvement over ksirc (remember folks, application quality is a 
multi-dimensional and possibly non-euclidean space, and we've not agreed on a 
distance metric nor an ordering on it, so "better" is always a dodgy word).

Gosh, now you mention it .. this has bothered me a little, but I can live with 
it. I guess that's why you're on usability and I'm just a code monkey.

Don't worry, 't ain't no shame to be stupid - ol' mouse.
