[Kst] Bugzilla Versions

I chose kst because it started with a k and was only three letters long :-)
I normally run it from the command line.

I originally thought of it as a chart recorder or 'stripchart'.

I don't have a better name (yet) but a good app slogan might be "explore
your data."

other tools people can use to work with FITS).

way, now would be a good time and we should do it *before* advertising the
new version!

from and please don't be offended but I find the name neither expressive
(who could gather the idea that it's a plotting tool from the name?) nor
"sexy". I've not given it much thought, but to kick off the brainstorming
I'd suggest "powerplot" or "powerplotter". That would surely increase the
hit rate by Google when looking for plot tools, especially if we create a
site with that string in the URL as I've noticed that sites with keywords in
the URL seem to get high scores. And more people may want to give it a try.
