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.
