I mean Tim is implementing the replacement currently with his TDE 
hardware library ( this is still beta ).

Instead of having 10 different projects, why doesn't everyone else join 
Trinity? We are the largest fork of KDE3. Anyone else is getting hung up 
on pointless technical arguments. Those people who choose to leave for 
those arguments are silly because in the end they hurt themselves more. 
KDE3 has a following and splitting the small developer and userbase up 
is ridiculous.
