Sending/comitting good and tested patches will do so too, why replace him?

Do you only want to contribute after acquiring maintainership or are your

want to be the boss before doing any work like you are perhaps used to in
your company while Konsole is developed collaborative. Prove me wrong. :-)

Column text selection would be welcomed by some. termcap/terminfo support
is missing long. Font support is mainly up to kdelibs/Qt. What scripting?
