I fully agree :-) What I wanted to say is (sorry for being unclear): For KDE 4.0 the introduction of KListView, KTreeView, ... classes has been dropped on purpose. If I remember the discussion correctly the introduction of K... counterparts in KDE 3 also resulted in some problems and it has been said that we should not introduce a K... class when the Q... class already provides all the functionality. However I think this decision was wrong in the case of item views.
