Does anybody know why kvim and vimpart was removed from Debian?

kvim was no longer maintained by its authors, and hence was removed. See the NEWS file for vim (in /usr/share/doc/vim):

Code: Select all
vim (1:6.3-068+4) unstable; urgency=medium

  * The kvim patch is unmaintained and has some annoying bugs, so we decided
    to remove the kvim packages from Debian.

I guess vimpart was removed for the same reason.

I'm sorry to hear that... I don't really miss vimpart, but I will miss kvim... :-(
It had this lovely open dialog KDE apps has...

GTK's open dialogs are just plainly crap.
