aseigo: why khtml is important

aseigo: why khtml is important:
"however, this effort does not reduce the usefulness of khtml (the KDE html rendering suite) to KDE. khtml is a bridge to other projects, a way to stress test the rest of our libraries, is a source of interest for several KDE hackers and is lighter on resources that gecko making it more appropriate as a component for apps that need to show some html but whose primary purpose on this planet is not to be a web browser. but these are not the most important reasons for khtml continuing to exist and be maintained."
Ummm... isn't Safari based on this engine? When i am using KDE I am using Konqueror which uses KHTML. I like it that way. I want the alternative. Whose brain dead idea is it to kill khtml?
