I'm still not convinced that we should name it Cocoon 3.0 _now_ (quoting 
myself from a few days ago):

[...] Before we make the decision if Corona should become Cocoon 3.0 we 
should learn more what other people think about it. (Currently it's only 
3 people who use it!) IMO the best way to find this out is by shipping 
alpha releases under a codename. This gives us the freedom to decide 
later without spoiling version numbers. [...]

When Corona is able to attract a stable community proves itself useable 
to a wider audience, we can start to ship it as Cocoon 3.0.

Or is it only me who needs to be convinced of shipping Corona as Cocoon 3.0?
