  I'm sorry if I sounded harsh in my comments. The last thing I want is a flamewar between C# and C++ ;)

Yeah C# relieved people from many language weirdnesses I suppose.
The friendly name didn't relate to the function name: my point was that the strings returned by the function were used in logs, thus could be more friendly to the end-user. But this is completely minor.

This is also minor, but it could have been the opportunity to wrap the strings with i18n() so that they are registered as translatable.
After all, they appear in the UI.

KStarsData::Instance()->clock()->utc() as done at line 1326.

They should not be part of your commit actually, as you did not change this yourself.
