Right. However I'm not convinced this is something you can 
agree/disagree on. Zope 2 exists. Zope 3 does not (it was split apart 
and renamed). As such, I don't see a problem with referring to it (Zope 
2) by name (it's not Voldemort, after all). Someday it will die; but 
that day is not today. And until that day comes (or it gets renamed, 
heaven forbid) I would strive for clear and consistent branding (and in 
this case, I think I would also try to make it clear that Zope 2 is 
"legacy" software).

I don't think they know what they mean :-)
