There can't be that much difference between a ticker for cricket scores and a 
ticker for football, rugby, Aussie rules, basketball or lacrosse scores. If 
you had sources for this data (or if the user could provide some), would 
kscoreticker be able to use them?

What about if kscoreticker could get it's data stream via RSS ? It could be a 
news-ticker too. Some people would find it handy to have a freshmeat news 
ticker or /. or mainstream news from any of the dozens of online news 

Is there a separate knews-ticker ?

If things like this are planned for upcoming releases (i.e. within the 
foreseeable future), a name change shouldn't be necessary. Otherwise, the 
name is clearly misleading.
