Right, thus I am clearly -1. :-) (Wow, now I do not even have to argue myself 
anymore. ;-)

Note that we spent a lot of time coming up with this name and pretty much all 
the contributors to the namespace were involved in the discussion. Also, z3c 
does not try to be the holy grail of community work. It is just another 
namespace and I think this should be accepted. Zope Corp decided to use "zc", 
Lovely Systems "lovely" and a bunch of us not representing a company decided 
to use "z3c". So what's wrong with that? Should I create a foundation called 
Z3C to have the right get this namespace? Other people can feel free to work 
on another namespace. (BTW, I would without a thought change the working in 
the ZSCP document to be less asserting and globalizing.)

I wonder how Zope Corp. would feel if I would ask them to use zcorp, because 
"zc" stands for Zope Community?

BTW, I am not aggravated about the mail; I am just very tired of those 
pointless namespace discussions.
