But something tells me the "gnome" in the name won't make the project very 
attractive to the KDE community...

Personally I don't care too much about the name, even though I think having 
something like "gnome-system-tools-backend" as a dependency of whatever the KDE 
version would be called if it gets written is going to confuse users.
