Yes, I know - this complicates things a little bit.

If there is no need to split,we shouldn't. I think the current corona 
stuff is a pipeline api so we should call it api :) Even if there are 
implementation classes in the package.

Hmm, yes, perhaps  - unfortunately we were not good when we introduced 
the current 2.2 module names.

Ok, we have several options: we could use 3.0.0 as version numbers, like 
pipeline-api-3.0.0 etc. This makes clear that this stuff is not usable 
with all the 2.x versions, but obviously this would create a strong 
perception of what would be a Cocoon 3.0.

The other option I see is to use names that 2.2 is currently not using, 
like cocoon-pipe, but I don't think that this is a very clear 

Seigh, it's not that easy :( But on the other hand using a fantasy name 
doesn't really help either. If we have cocoon-pipeline-api-2.2 and 
corona-pipeline-api-1.0 it's as confusing.

The corona stuff is an evolution of 2.2, so I think we should use 
functional names with version numbers 3.x and above. Hopefully this pays 
off in the long run.
