In KDE all windows unless overwritten have a title "caption - App Name".  This 
includes progress dialogs, color dialogs, message box, file dialogs etc.

In OS X, Gnome, Qt, Firefox and Windows they only add the application name to 
primary windows that are handling documents.  For example opening a file in 
GEdit shows "Untitled - GEdit", but selecting File/Open has the title "Open 

I would like to propose that in KDE 4 our secondary windows wont automatically 
append the application name.  This will make us consistant with the other 
desktop enviornments.
