I haven't said anything on this thread until now, I was holding my
judgement till both sides had been exposed.

Frankly I think this is quite pointless and would be a bad thing. It
would show that the Trinity project had no backbone, if we tried to
"reconcile" or whatever with KDE (ignoring all the licensing issues or
whatever) It would impede our efforts

As for naming, Konsole isn't copyright, Konqueror isn't copyright, etc
so we can keep the K scheme, it is familiar and easy.

Internally we need to continue rebranding and seperating it.
Eventually we should become fully seperate from the KDE naming scheme,
but the manpower required to do so is insane
