Renaming sound files?

Many sound files are named with a KDE_* prefix. Everything works as is and there is no requirement to rename the files. Yet in the spirit of renaming for branding purposes, should we rename those files to TDE_*?

There are two packages that contain the files: tdebase and tdeartwork. Renaming and updating the respective make files is straightforward, as is updating 11 default eventsrc config files in other packages in the source tree.

A remaining challenge is updating existing user profile eventsrc config files to use the renamed files because existing eventsrc config files will be referencing sound files with the KDE_* prefix, which no longer would exist.

Currently we have no mechanism to update profile eventsrc files. We can write a new shell script to perform the updates. The new script would be called by the migratekde3 and called once from within starttde, like the r14-xdg-update script. Or embed the updates in the migratekde3 and r14-xdg-update scripts.

The renaming would be R14 only and not expected to be backwards compatible with 3.5.13 sru.
