Isn't KWrite more light-weight (basically just a window frame wrapped 
around a KATE-part)?

Personally I never cared for KATE (the application); it seems like a 
KDevelop-wannabe, whereas I'm usually looking for 'just a text editor'. 
I use KWrite (and KDevelop, which is using KATE-part) all the time. The 
only time I ever used KATE was on a computer that didn't have KDevelop.

Given that it *is* basically nothing but a KATE-part container, is there 
really much overhead in maintaining KWrite?
