As I said before, I'm +0 on enhancing the brand,

IMO codenames make it harder, not easier, to talk about releases.
Which came first - Cheetah or Puma? I submit that nobody but
a certified mac geek can answer that question without googling it.
I agree with Paul here. Version relationships are important for
technical audiences, and names don't help wirth that. I don't know
what would help with marketing, but I suspect a general brand would be
more helpful than version codenames.
The only version codename I'm likely to remember is that for Ubuntu
The original discussion never suggested code names for releases, but a
brand name to help Zope 3 separate itself from Zope 2 - since it is a
*completely* different beast.
Code names for releases is only useful inside the team, IMO - unless you
have the marketing power of designing a themed logo for every release
(like Apple did - and it still creates confusion, so they dropped that for
10.4 Tiger - no stripes there, sir).
