I object!

...to waiting that long to remove it.  :)

Back when Ben Meyer was looking to remove kedit someone named Bertjan
Broeksema wanted to take over maintainership, but after an inital
flurry of activity he  hasn't done much work since then.

Bertjan: do you still want this program or what? Were you planning on
bringing it up-to-date and dealing with the stuff on bugs.kde.org or
did you just plan on keeping it compileable? I won't deny kedit has
its usefulness but to be honest quite a lot of us around here would
just like to see it go away at this point.  :)
