[Kde-imaging] Naming inconsistencies

Today I was looking at our current API and spotted a few inconsistencies in 
the names we are using.

* Album vs ImageCollection
Our image container class is named ImageCollection, but we have some various 
parts where we're speaking about Album. I think we should rename 
ImageCollection to Album. This means the following changes:

ImageCollection -> Album
ImageCollectionShared -> AlbumShared

And also in the Interface class:
- currentAlbum -> currentView

* description vs comment
In the ImageInfo class, we have descriptions but the corresponding KIPI 
features names it comments. Since we use comments in ImageCollection/Album, I 
suggest we rename the description "property" in ImageInfo to comment.

If you agree on this, I volunteer to make the necessary changes in libkipi and 
kipi-plugins. What would be the best way to rename ImageCollection? ask the 
admin to rename the CVS files or just a plain cvs remove/cvs add ?
