Why did you add this functionality to KMag? Just because you could do 
it? I think it's a) a useless feature for the typical user of a screen 
magnifier (people with bad vision will never want to simulate 
color-blindness) and b) a nice feature hidden in an application I would 
have never looked into when looking for this functionality.

I suggest to remove this functionality from KMag and put it into a 
simple dedicated single-purpose application, so that people looking for 
such an application can find it easily.

You might want to reread the discussion about KSnapshot which lead to a 
very nice dedicated single-purpose application.
