 ROTFL. I should make up an odd story based on this (BTW, 'cor' also 
apparently means 'odd' in Irish).

 So, as you might have noticed, it has almost become a tradition that SUSE 
people use odd names whenever they create any KDE-related: Meinproc, 
unsermake, icecream, and I'm sure I'm missing a few more. And since KHotKeys, 
as much as it was an odd misnomer, didn't quite have a ring to it, I tried 
harder this time.

 But if that's not a good story, an odd tortoise that simply wanted its good 
ole desktop back is fine with me too.

 It's a name, I had to name it something. As long as there's nothing actually 
wrong with the name, I just use it and don't care what the name is.

 PS: Although, thinking about it, you had me wondering for a moment why you 
hadn't asked about 'Kor'.
