Still the name looks awfully close to "kicker". It's just like e.g. adding a 
program for shopping lists to KDE and calling it "kmall". Many people would 
read "kmail" first. Also, when I read something about clicking in connection 
with a GUI program, I first think about a computer mouse, e.g. some tool for 
learning the usage of a mouse, not a metronome.
