Re:With a name like Qtpfsgui, no wnder

Professional?

It's not like Qtpfsgui is a product name. It's a project started by one guy to perform a task that nothing else out there was doing. And, at that, a highly technical task that does not get performed by "normal" people with any frequency. Given those constraints, a functional name is appropriate.

When you see this code hit the mainstream, it isn't going to be a stand-alone tool anyway, it will be more useful as one part of a larger image editing environment -- see Boudewijn's note below about the Krita plugin.

Don't get me wrong, I'm a big fan of good project naming. But this is single-purpose code that will eventually serve as an integrated part of bigger projects; if we discounted small projects because we didn't like their names, we would have run the other direction -- screaming -- from GREYCstoration<nobr> <wbr></nobr>... and we would have then missed out on one of the best de-noising filters in Krita and GIMP land.
