Come on, you know what he means: khtml IS right now the official KDE html 
engine, and nothing else has been decided. By saying that people shouldn't 
work on an SVG viewer you imply that this is not necessary because Qt 4.4 
will have an SVG viewer, namely the one from webkit. So if KDE will use the 
SVG viewer from webkit, it will probably also use the webkit html engine. 
Obviously Maksim isn't too happy about this way of informing him that khtml 
will be dead once KDE requires Qt 4.4.
