Well, this was just a followup idea :).
I personally like to have something like a real application name in
about dialogs to easily 'identify' the program.
But I must admit even in xfce4-dict this isn't true (it says "Xfce4
Dictionary" and not "xfce4-dict").
So, yes, let's forget about this exception.
