I would vote for (anything the rest want) and:



graphic/qcad/  # A true vector based CAD for linux


security/keepassx/  # if you don't use it -- you should, it's that good...
                    # no need to add to tree, this slack version is Qt4
                    # as well. (it's available outside TDE). Screenshot:

utilities/ksendfax/ # very capable fax tool (hdw modem needed)
