KDevelop 2.0 was Gideon

There were millions of names to choose for their Gtk Desiger app, but these guys decided to go with the only one that would clash with a KDE project: KDevelop 3.0 (current line) was called "Gideon".

This is at least as stupid as when the Mozilla Foundation chose the "Firebird" name for their standalone browser, effectively clashing with the Firebird relational database.

Question is what could have prompted someone to have named the kde program anything but kgideon?
