Do you really think "Toolbar Foobar Visible" makes a good menu item name?

Sigh. Why does everything have to be so controversial in KDE, and where 
was everyone when I posted
(which was even cc'ed to kde-usability)?
The only answer on kde-usability was this one: http://lists.kde.org/?l=kde-usability&m=107609286521568&w=2
which was from Gerard (who asked me to implement that change).

I don't care what happens now. This is a usability issue. If the kde-usability
people can come up with a decision, I'm happy, whichever way it is.
