It looks like "KDE" and "kde" are both defined several places in
kcmdlineargs.cpp for parsing purposes.  Furthermore, the following files
in tdelibs alone use or provide this string in the command line context:

To directly answer your question, the text string itself is defined in
kapplication.cpp:1566, but modifying the text string means that the other
files I mentioned must also be modified.

Hope this helps!
