IMO the most of the missing features in Quassel aren't needed by the the 
newbies. Powerusers and developers are knowing how to install their favoured 
client. I think it is a bit early to switch back just after one release. Are 
there really showstoppers in Quassel? Are there any statements from Quassel 
how the developing goes forward? I see all the lovely features which Konvi is 
providing, I loved using Konvi for a long time and it's possible that I'm 
going to use it again if there will be _the feature_ that I need. Unless then 
I'm happy not to change any program. I think the most of the users don't have 
fun testing and changing programs ... Dolphin hadn't that much features as 
Konqueror for a long time, but he does is Job great. Same for me in view of
