FlashKard is not there anymore. Been replaced by KWordQuiz which offers more 
capabilities. kvtml is not only for KWordQuiz, KVocTrain uses it and so does 
KHangMan. There are numerous files contributed in that format taht's why I 
mentionned it.

We try to unify things in kdeedu so even if we have Kiten which is a Japanese 
only tool, we move toward more global things. That means that if your 
screensaver is only Japanese, well, considering that few pupils will look at 
a screensaver, we (kdeedu people on IRC today) see little educational value 
in it. 
If we are to open a kdeedu/screensavers subdir, we'll have to accept a 
screensaver that shows atoms, one that shows planets, and so on...


PS: Any follow up on my previous font question?
