That would be useful: the names I found when I started looking at them were
absolutely horrible -- but I'm hardly capable of doing better. I'll go with
Alan's suggestion for now and use "Paint" for Krita -- but I'm not sure what
would be the best thing for Karbon.
How about that?
Anyway... This shows that we can indeed give Alan a free hand with the menu
organization since nobody really had any reaction to his menu suggestions.
Have fun, Alan! (Don't touch the filters menu, though, because I'm working on
a different way to load the filters and that will affect the menu handling).
