Although KEdit might just be case where it is better to delete it (I don't know), I would like not to remove projects in general. 
There is no chance in the world anyone would do a full checkout of obsolete stuff, chances are better that you want to look at a certain file for a second, I would normally use websvn for that. Using websvn for deleted stuff is a real pain. 
Also if the stuff is easy accessible it might be up for adoption easier (no difficult start). 

Again, I'm talking about abandoned/unmaintained projects in general, not about KEdit, which might not be usefull to keep around at all.
