So we are proposing a new kdeattic (or kdefoo) module to act as a repository
of abandoned/orphaned/unmaintained code.  All in one convenient location
so that potential maintainers can easily find, and possibly resurrect our code.
Or use it for examples.

If kedit were reborn, it would take the path of attic -> playground -> kdereview -> kdeextragear.

We would need to ensure that attic doesn't become a one stop dumping ground
for all our old crap.  The attic could contain partially ported code, old kde 3 code,

This is my KDE signature
