properly rename a subset, not everything.
The rest can stay in opt, and slowly be renamed.

Seriously, about the owner....
I think a new leader is needed.
Pearson has not enough time for trinity.
This project is effectively leaderless.

It seams that Slavek is the most invested person
in the project right now. Maybe he should be in charge?

actually i wasn't criticizing the theme.
More like, remove kde branding.
tdm comes by default with a kubuntu wallpaper.
I think upstream should keep it's default theme simple
and conservative. It's up to distros to do weird stuff.
