IF you're going to rename it, I think you should call it something LIKE

K Image Database
  (or KimDaBa for short)

That said, I DO like "Kaleidoscope," and normally, I shy away from the 
K[named] apps because they seem to have an alienating effect on Gnome 
and other desktop oriented users, HOWEVER....

"Kleidoscope" ... if you go that direction.
