[kde-community] Renaming KScreenGenie

I used to use KSnapshot (or whatever the existing application is
called, all these names going around have me second guessing myself)
on windows all the time. It works much better than window's print
screen and paste into MS paint to be able to save the screenshot to
disk and such. The better it works the more places it will be useful.
Tying it down to k* or plasma-workspace would be limiting it, so a
name that's different than any other application would be ideal imo.

BR,
Jeremy
