Again, you're citing software that's already within KDE (and you're implying 
that it's not getting enough attention) for making the point that software in 
KDE has a better chance of being maintained because the developers don't have 
to care about making releases. This doesn't make sense. Fish:/ started out as 
a third party application btw.

I have no idea how you're arriving at that conclusion. FWIW, would you be sad 
to see kfloppy go and never come back?
