From the user perspective I can edit the underlying docbook files to avoid displaying "khelpcenter," but I would like to see all khelpcenter references renamed to tdehelpcenter. Like other renaming efforts, such as kdm ->  tdm, renaming khelpcenter requires a focused effort and not just a simple search-and-replace.

Renaming some apps and commands makes sense, but I am not in favor of wholesale changes right now. Possibly as an R15 goal but for R14, I wish people would get more involved in resolving current outstanding bug reports. :)

When it is all said and done all the "k" prefixes should be done 
otherwise you have a kde/tde environment.  Which one is it?

Is this thing tde or is this thing kde3++?
