        "What's in a name? That which we call a rose
        By any other name would smell as sweet."
                W.Shakespeare, "Romeo and Juliet"

Probably Robbie could add a note that "the term KKT or KT conditions
comes from non-linear programming, and in case of LP it means the same
as necessary and sufficient optimality conditions for global optimum".
