Hmm, maybe I got this wrong, but Gary Poster expressed a strong concern 
that "zope 3 the app server" needed to keep living.

I do think the name "Zope" should never be used on its own again.

I think "Zope Classic" would certainly work for "Zope 2 the app server", 
it conveys the right things:

- mature
- stable
- maybe not the best choice for new development.
