I didn't word my reply well. You are partly citing KDE convention to back up your 
position. What I meant to say is that until people who know about such things say that 
you are right in that respect, I don't buy into it. So far, unless I'm mistaken, 
nobody else has agreed with you on the naming issue. So unless that changes, and 
because I disagree with you, I will use the names which I proposed.
