I actually think it's a brilliant idea to "skip" 3.0 and call it 4.0.

As Martin said, the potential for confusion is very high. A 4.0 would 
not only steer around confusing Zope3 3.x and Zope2 3.x, it would also 
make it easier to move back to the simple "Zope" moniker without any 
qualifying number tacked on. People who only look at version numbers 
would now choose Zope 4.0 instead of falling into the "unmaintained" 
Zope3 trap.
