Personal preferences aside, using WebKit's SVG functionality for some image 
viewer part does not in the least imply what happens to the browser.
And with which authority should Thomas (a knowledgeable bystander) "inform" 
Maksim (KHTML key contributor) that KHTML is being replaced?

C'mon people, let's stop being paranoid everyone.
Qt 4.4 will be a good thing, but KDE 4.0 does not yet depend on it.
WebKit won't go in through the backdoor, and Trolltech is not evil.

Good night,
