assuming that kfax really is generally unmaintained / not actively worked on 
i'd be all for this. kfax doesn't seem to be all that sophisticated, it's 
just a viewer, and kviewshell certainly has more features and 2 active 
developers to boot.

what sort of user documentation will be provided for kviewshell for those 
wishing to work with faxes? that's really about all i can see being at issue 
here ... though perhaps i've missed something
