Just so that I understand what this discussion is about: the choices are the 
best and _maintained_ image application and one that isn't maintained and 
hasn't been for a while and to a: "hey, do you want a free/better 
application", response of the most is "well, you have to implement those 
features first"?
 I really like Gwenview and I definitely liked a lot Lubos response from 
above. I also think it's awesome that Aurélien is interested in getting his 
app in kdegraphics itself because the module needs some life bread into it. 
None of you wrote or even tried to write a better image viewer but so many of 
you feel that you have the right to make demands and provide pretty nasty 
I guess what I'm saying is that you guys are dicks and I hope Gwenview will 
end up in kdegraphics as soon as possible and Aurélien will continue working 
on it.
