I fully agree with that. A major version of Zope 2 is actually a
minor at the version meaning, but everybody knows that for instance
to switch from 2.10 to 2.11 you have to review and update your code
like if it was a real major version change at the version meaning.
That would be really confusing to do otherwise, since it was like
that for years.
I am also in favor of dropping the 2, but picking a new name would
be nice, like to have 'framework x' 10 that map to Zope 2 2.10,
'framework x' to 2.11. Other products did that, Solaris,
Mac OS X ... it is not strange to do so I think.
