    The KWord maintainer was the sole reason for the split. It's not like he managed to get anything done with KWord on his own.

      Fortunately, devleopers often don't write code because it's practical or even desired, but simply to scratch their own curiosity, interest or add the feeling of atonomy to their life. And some time after a project is born it starts to pick up professional characteristics that allow it to compete.
