yes, it took years until Woody was gone. But the situation was different 
because Woody had a large user base which Corona hasn't (yet).

yes, I really get tired of this discussion. Since it will probably be me 
who has to do the actual renaming work, I'm strongly in favor of leaving 
things as they are (= keeping the name Corona, do some alpha/beta 
releases and then we still can decide if we have to change something ...)

What would be the options that we vote on?

  a) keep the name Apache Cocoon Corona
  b) rename to Apache Cocoon Silk
  c) we need to find some other name

Any other options?
