I like KDE Galaxy! KDE Apps Bundle is also fine IMO.

I'm also coming around to the idea that we should do away with the named 
wrapper entirely and just say "It's KDE apps release day" a few times a 
year, with greater emphasis on the individual apps names and versions.

+1 on not bikeshedding this to death.
