Zope 2 has a package named "Zope". Zope 3 has a package named "zope". Starting with Zope 2.8, parts of Zope 3 will be included in Zope 2. As things stand, this will require having both "Zope" and "zope" packages. Python can handle this fine, however, it will require putting the packages in separate directories (for Windows). A typical Zope installation will probably add at least two directories to the Python path, for:

- The Zope software

- Instance (site) specific packages

So adding two directories, rather than one for the Zope software isn't
a big deal.

Of course, having two packages with names differing only in case is a
bit ugly.

Do we want to consider renaming one or both of these packages
to avoid the conflict?
