John, thanks a lot for taking care of ksysguard. I consider it one of the best 
applications of the KDE basic workspace. I push it energetically on all sys-
admins I find (and usually they're easily convinced).

I believe the most important feature of ksysguard is its remote capability. I 
must acknowledge that I know very little of the mechanics of this feature (yet 
I know it is developed in-house, since at the time (long ago...), Chris 
Schlaeger didn't really have much choice in terms of monitoring libraries).

I dare to ask you consider to not remove this feature. Perhaps your 
observation is rather an occasion to look at some redesign (and reuse of 
better (?) technologies in remote monitoring).

Another aspect that tingled me for some time now is how nice ksysguard widgets 
would fit in plasmoids.

Thanks a lot for your attention and for your great work.
