Most other projects in subversion are named after their eggs (or

ZODB breaks this rule in such a subtle manner that I usually always
get it wrong.
Since we can't easily rename the ZODB3 egg to ZODB (dependencies
would break), I suggest we rename the subversion directory to
'ZODB3'. Then at least it'll be consistent.
I'd like to officially veto this so that no one else feels compelled
to give an opinion. :) Mt veto is largely for the reasons Fred gave
and also because I'd like, someday, to split the ZODB3 release into
it's constituent packages.
