 KHTML has 1000+ bugreports, with wishes it's about 1500. Konqueror as a whole 
has 2500+ bugreports, 4500 with wishes. A significant portion of where we are 
now. Does that mean they are unmaintained and we should not be accepting 
bugreports for them, and if yes, why there are 44 reports closed this week?

 Besides, if something is unmaintained, then we either still need it, despite 
this, and then the bugreports still matter, or it will be dropped, and then 
the bugreports can be dropped as well.

 As for reports for unmaintained things, some time back I talked to David 
about creating a special alias/ml.list for these, and kde/general and 
unmaintained components would have it as the default asignee. 
I'm not sure what the status of that is though.
