Well, I tend to like the idea behind the dual personality of KWrite and
Kate. But, I don't see this as being the same thing. Having KView as a
lightweight viewer is a short term project and adding the capability to
use the part in the KViewShell to have an integrated viewer app would be
a long term project that would replace the stand alone KView app (but
the KPart would still work in Konqueror).
