I'm afraid I'm not seeing a very convincing argument as to why all these KDE 
applications are inferior. I use Kmail, Konqueror, and Kopete because they 
have features I use that the other applications you have listed don't. To 
simply say, Kopete < Gaim is not enough. Many would disagree with you and 
you're not giving any valid reasons why. Can you so easily quantify the 
usefulness of an application to the community in general? I do not believe 
so.  KDE is shaped by what the community wants and needs, and if you want 
your voice to be heard a more compelling argument is required. 

On another note, have you had a look at ?
