Layout from the command line is very similar between the two.

The worst part of the km* naming scheme is it was fine for
just one binary, then kmtime came along, then kmquery, then
dumptext got ported over to qt & what made sense initially
now has got out of hand. And as additional tools drop out
of the SGI OSRB, continuing this naming scheme is just more
and more obfuscated ... try explaining it to punters at a
PCP talk @work or worse a conference (on observers faces:
"is that a typo?", "shouldnt that be...", "but everything
else was pm-something, that sticks out like dogs balls!",
ps: Fedora10 has changed rpm options/syntax/configs/... &
the pcp/pcp-gui Makepkgs is b0rked - any interest in having
a look, Max? You know this stuff better than anyone (Ken
said you'd _really_ want to take a look... ;)
