It's not just applications though. There are also libraries and scripts
and plugins in the "bundle".

While I find "Apps Bundle" better than "Applications", it still wouldn't
be a perfect fit. We should find a better name, ideally as catchy as
"Plasma" is, but I don't know if we can.

How about going back to "KDE Software Compilation YY.MM" instead?
