Squeeze and Xarchiver

Don't get me wrong, I'm just wondering why two developers from the same
meta-project (let's call XFCE like this) are working on independent
implementations of an archive manager ?
It seems strange, do you really disagree about the whole design ?
As far as I know, Giuseppe's Xarchiver does the job, why not working
together to improve Xarchiver instead of reinventing the wheel. Nothing
bad about forking/reinventing in the general case : there are many Linux
distributions with same goals, and challenging is usually a source of
improvements - it just seems strange within the same meta-project.
Imho, Squeeze will probably be better than Xarchiver (design errors
won't be reproduced, shared code will be improved, ...) , or it won't
last , so why not merging efforts ?
