I was referring to when Waldo added a whole bunch of functions from you to
KIE, when:
1) You weren't really involved anymore
2) There were no clients for them

Look, the only thing I really want is some sort of "I am back, and
reasonably expect to be back for a while" statement. That's all.
What I wouldn't like is if there was a bunch of cool code from you
in kdelibs with no one to call as its maintainer.

I am obviously not aware of any turning down other than Zack's grand plans,
which IMHO should not be a detriment to you --- should you get an SVN
account again, what you do with or for kdelibs will have as much of
significance as what Zack may do. Ultimately, what gets done matters...
