    Since it all seems to be an April's joke, how about the KDE
    people change _their_ program names so as to

    (1) not confuse kernel people [kwin -> kdewin]
    since apparently, GNOME does it more than just right
    (who would have thought! "gnome-control-center" is a perfect name,
    "gcontrolcenter" would have been acceptable too, but "gcc" would not.)

    and

    (2) not look like they did not know the English language.
    [kontact,kolf,kompare -> contact,golf,compare]

    Some are valid in German though [kalzium,konsole] and KDE does
    seem to have strong .de ties, so I let these go through.
