Maybe.  What do you think of:

"Python ZMethod"
"Python Zope Method"
"Python Web Method"

Here's what the meat of the problem really is, explained well by Jim:

  Evan's Zope objects named "Python Methods" don't behave 
  or look like methods defined by the Python programming 
  language. There are quite a few people who think this is a 
  problem. Evan has good reasons for wanting the current
  behavior. If this problem is considered to be significant, 
  there are, a number of possible alternatives:

  1. Change the name of Evan's objects, in which case
     "Python Method" shouldn't be a choice.

  2. Change the behavior of Evan's objects to more closely
     match what Python programmers would recognize as a 
     Python method.

Thus the poll did not ask the right question.
