Is there a Master List of what is Renamed k->t or k->tde?

Darrell, All,

  Messing with tdepowersave I ran into a problem figuring out what kcmshell was
called. I tried Alt+F2:

  kcmshell foo
  tcmshell foo
  tdecmshell foo - Bingo!

  That raised the question, do we have a list somewhere of what has been
renamed? Some things have been renamed 'k'->'t' others 'k'->'tde' others not
renamed at all. Doing 'tcmshell --list | sort' somewhat exemplifies the problem.

  I was thinking some khelpcenter (t,tde)helpcenter page called something like
"Trinity Desktop Naming Cross-reference" that would simple provide a brief
introduction that in order to avoid name conflict with KDE4, the following files
and modules have been renamed:

kfoo1 -> tfoo1
kfoo2 -> tfoo2

  Absolutely falls under the 'nice to have' not 'need to have' column, but if it
doesn't exist, then we may want to collect a list of obvious things that users
might experience difficulty with and include those in the list. Like:

kcmshell -> tdecmshell
