kvim is not maintained upstream, the patch is ugly, and we (debian vim 
packagers) decided to drop it, since we hadn't the time to take over 
upstream.

and in popcon, vim-gtk, vim-gnome, vim-python and alike are all 
graphical uis, and if you sum them up, they are more used than kvim 
IIRC.

moreover, kvim has *never* been of release quality (not in a debian 
sense, but in absolute) : full of graphical glitches, UI problems, and 
utilization malfunctions.


so we drop it. but if you feel like you can fix all those + maintain the 
patch, you are welcome, and we'd gladly add it again
