Also, I would like to add that this is not meant to be a replacement of the
existing calculator but an optional "enhanced" calculator, since it requires
an additional external dependency (libqalculate). So IMO the current choice of
branding (name and icon) could be acceptable. If there are no objections, I
would like to move it to kdeplasma-addons next weekend. I am willing to
mantain it in the future.
