I am afraid I agree with Ovidiu-Florin here. I use all functionality including 
Feeds, Journal, To-do, Pop Notes that have little to zero to  do with contacts 
(what one would associate an app named kontact to) The problem is PIM is quite 
unattractive as a name, but it is the abbreviation used for Personal 
Information Manager which is a bit long winded... So surely a better overall 
name can be established. I am sorry but Kontact is not it.
