I'd agree with a rename, but I'm also slightly concerned the libkgeomap name
suggests it is _the_ KDE solution for geomaps and other modules will start
using it that way and we will have a de-facto solution without any thought
being put into it. If it's ever intended to be used outside kdegraphics or
even eventually moved to kdelibs then a stricter review will be needed, and
we'd need to think about how it compares to using QtMobility/QLocation.
