hi all..

i see decibel is in kdereview. nice =)

i did notice that the dbus service that comes with it is prefixed with 
de.basyskom (Eva's company, which is (was?) working on decibel). if decibel 
is going to be merged into kde libraries and shipped as part of that, should 
the dbus name be org.kde or are we ok with company names slipping into our 
dbus interfaces?

on the one hand i understand the desire for basyskom to have their name on it, 
other the other it makes the KDE interfaces less consistent and if every 
company involved starting doing this we'd have a rainbow of fruit flavours in 
our dbus addresses.
