You are using 7 times the term "Zope2" and 9 times "Zope 3"
and also "Plone 3.0" in this small text. Can you try to describe 
this without "2 or 3" in "Zope *"? I guess not, right?

I really don't care about how it is called, but I'm sure we
need some naming convention and since we have one, I don't see
any reason to change this.

You also use the term "Plone 3.0" which you implie that we
know that you mean the Plone which uses Zope 3 components.

You are respecting the postifx 3.0 in the Plone world but 
not for Zope? why?

I'm a little confused and don't understand why you are lobbing 
for such a renaming and at the same time you are using this 
terms so heavy.
