Re: Kvim broken in alioth

I agree, that making yet another editor looks like more balkanization. I 
already use kate most of the time as starting up gvim in KDE takes a 
lot of time and editing large files makes a lot of probs. The only 
thing missing in Kate is the ex-functionality, kind of integrated sed 
being able to address ranges and complicated regex. That's what I use 
vim for and this already existed in the initial vi.

I had also lots of trouble with kvim in my weired setup, but it is just 
a pity to start the whole gnome-bazar to be able to have a nice-looking 

And no, I can't maintain it, as I'm not a programmer nor do I have 
sufficient time. So I was just looking for a qt-GUI for vi. But it 
seems that editor-maintainers are more attracted by gnome.
