Hmmkay I suppose it could get confusing for some. The current 'xTest' it is 
then: not totally dull and covers it pretty good. x = generic, test = test.

Veritas does sound way nicer though ... At least for me funny names do stick 
better. For instance I dont seem to forget what the following names stand 
for, after making the association once:

sublime == ui
plasma  == kwidget
dolpin  == kexplorer
krita   == kpaint
okteta  == khexedit
marble  == kearth

anyway, enough about a name! :)
