...because if I hadn't, I'd have created "KMag+" (with a different name) 
instead, which one could then argue makes KMag redundant. (Also because 
the eventual plan is to add modes that are actually useful for a11y, 
which will overlap somewhat - including code-wise, I expect - with the 
current simulation stuff. And besides, it's still an a11y feature :-).)

Nope, because I wanted dichromacy-simulation in a program that has 
KMag's features.

I'll give you being hidden in a weird spot :-).

Ah... Yeah. I don't think forking is a good idea in this instance.

ESIG: .sig file not available
(Ironically, while the above does indeed appear in my .sig collection, 
in this case Thunderbird really has lost my .sig :-).)
