Yeah, I think pretty names only make sense when you want to market something 
separately, and have the disadvantage that nobody will know what the thing 

So where is this name supposed to be used? Just consider how confusing it was 
if the tool-views in kdevelop-4 were called "Shark", "Toothache", or 
whatever. I prefer "Project", "Filesystem", "Teamwork", etc., things that 
allow you having some kind of overview without needing to remember strange 
names. ;)

Greetings, David
