Did you read any reference to Ligature/Kviewshell in Pino's mail?

I don't remember such strong decision although i agree some people has 
expressed this opinion, but for me, in a world where not all solutions are 
perfect, i prefer to have two quite good solutions so that in case one fails 
maybe the other works.

This sentence is so wrong...

A) There is kpdf that is on kdegraphics in KDE 3.5. We rename it to okular and 
put it on playground because all the other formats different than PDF were 
not good enough. There is kviewshell that is on kdegraphics in KDE 3.5. You 
rename it to Ligature and now claim that your project is there and can not be 
replaced because "it was the first"? This is a quite weak argument in my 

B) It is not you (nor me) who will decide if Ligature is going to be shipped 
or not in kdegraphics in the case it is decided that only one of the two 
programs can be on kdegraphics.

To clarify, we just want to move okular to kdegraphics because lots of people 
has been requesting it on IRC, my blog comments and personal mails.
