My comments on this (I'm the author of QuadKonsole):

- I did port QuadKonsole to KDE 4. The code is sitting in my home account. But
I was not satisfied with it. I could not make the keyboard shortcuts work (I
personally don't use them, but I know a lot of people who do). There was also a
superfluous one-pixel spacing between lines of text, and that was driving me
crazy. I don't want to release this code because I want people to search for a
good solution rather than accepting a 50% solution.

- I think this should be part of Konsole itself. I envision an action titled
"Split Horizontally", like in Konqueror. Same with vertically. It would be much
better supported if it's part of Konsole. It would not be intrusive: you don't
see it if you don't use it.

- For now, I'm using Terminator (http://www.tenshu.net/terminator/). It is
incredibly good. We should copy it.
