[kde-edu]: Paraphrase practice with Parley

As a teacher of English I find Parley a great tool to revise and extend your 
vocabulary. I use it myself and recommend it to those of my students who are 
Linux users. So thank you all for such great work!

Last September I upgraded from version 0.9.3 to the current 0.9.4 version and 
found that the paraphrase practice was missing. I wrote to the list then to 
say how interesting I think that type of practice is, and to ask for it to be 
supported again. I do believe that upper-intermediate and advanced students 
can benefit most from this type of practice.

Now that KDE 4.6 has been around for some time (I'm already using KDE 4.6.1 on 
Arch Linux), I once again put forward my request to have the paraphrase 
practice back. Isn't it possible to add the option back, say next to the 
example practice (which is also a monolingual practice activity)?

Kind regards,
