Do they? Oh, I didn't notice that...
Well, if the KDE folks feel its worth to have a KIMP, they can of course
code one. However I think it would be a waste of time and effort. People
will want to have one common GIMP UI. If there's something we can do to
integrate GIMP better with KDE, I'd love to hear about it.
