Au contraire. Friends of mine are extremely pissed off because the 
network functionality of ksirtet doesn't work. Each time a new version 
of KDE was released they tried again with the same result. I guess I 
don't have to explain that this doesn't put KDE in the best light. In 
fact, in my opinion unmaintained applications with functionality- 
crippling bugs hurt KDE. If nobody wants to fix those bugs then those 
broken applications should be removed. Alternatively, someone could 
simply remove the non-functional network code from ksirtet. This would 
at least prevent more people from being disappointed about a 
non-working feature.

Note, that I don't no anything about ksmiletris or ksame or klickety, 
and thus I don't know whether my above remarks apply to those apps.
