Personal Settings was not a KDE moniker, but one used by openSUSE and maybe
some other distros.

Not that there's any justification for what Gnome devs did, but what _was_
wrong with KControl? KControl still makes more sense to me, as it doesn't
imply global settings management, as opposed to user-specific settings
management, which is most of what they do.
