well, kde doesn't have a patent on words starting with a 'k', but being
part of kde would be a *reason* to prefix a package name with a 'k' to
indicate so. that's why i said it's not part of kde, so i see no reason
to do so. 

to clarify the whole subject: the package is named "uml" upstream, what
i think is too generic. "kuml" is another project, and has nothing to do
with it. 
i just wanted to ask whether anybody has a suggestion for a name, and
whether "uml-modeller" (american now ;-) is still too generic. most
people don't care, one thought it is. since i can't think of anything
better i will go with "uml-modeller" for now.
