Inspired by the idea of KDE Galaxy (which I like a lot), I looked at an
online thesaurus, and add KDE: Pageant, Splash, Array, Aspects, Particles.

Any other ideas? Otherwise I see no reason not to go with KDE App Bundle,
since the release manager wants to change it, and the Promo team likes it
as well.

Can we come to a decision rather than bike-shedding this to death?
