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.
