I am -1 on pushing a "Zope3 is now the Zope Toolkit" message:  I would
rather that we *not bring up Zope3 in public again*, while still
enabling those who have built apps atop the un-brand to maintain them.
If somebody asks, "Hey, what happened to Zope3?", we can explain briefly
that the core of it is now ZTK, and that the other bits have a life of
their own, but *without the un-brand*.

To this end, I think we sholud remove all traces of the un-brand from
prominent places on our websites, try to stay "on message" as a
community, while re-focusing on the technical aspects of the transition
(rather than the branding / perception ones).
