While it is the description that ends up on Invent yes, it should still be
consistent with the way we market/describe ourselves.
Describing it as a "KDE client" is therefore incorrect.

These descriptions may also be found by potential contributors (who aren't
coders - think documentation people, etc), so having a more user-friendly
description is probably better in the long run.
