Thanks.  I take it this point reinforces your proposal that we should 
both create Zope Toolkit as a subset of Zope 3, *and* rename Zope 3 to 
something else.

We could rename Zope 3 to "Zope Toolkit Reference Application for the 
InterNet", or ZTRAIN.  This name expresses several intents:

- Zope 3 is the reference application for building something for the 
Internet on top of Zope Toolkit.

- Not all of the Zope community is using it.  If everyone were using it, 
we would call it simply Zope.  However, someone is using it, otherwise 
we wouldn't bother naming it.

- Zope 3 was derailed (pun, ha ha) a bit and now we're trying to put it 
back on track.

- People who like Ruby on Rails might like this too.

Also, it follows the open source tradition of slightly whimsical names. 
  The logo could be a train engine driven by a Zope fish. :-)
