He very obviously thought there was work being duplicated - and he
acted responsibly by mentioning the other project doing this. Now he
didn't know Aurelien was aware of that (and afaik Aurelien was), and
just wanted to create a quick solution for KDE 4.0 - you might say he
should have done his homework better, but he was not trying to
discourage someone from doing something good - he tried to prevent
unnecesairy work. If someone decided to write a html engine for KDE,
what would you say? If you have reasons to believe he/she might be
unaware there is an KDE HTML engine, you would start by telling about
that, right? Imho that's the right thing to do.
