Well, for me, the release number is not part of the name of a package
(of anything in general) eventhough I agree the combination of both is
what uniquely identifies the product.  Luc wants to add the "2" just to
warn the users about the lack of backward compatibility.  That would
simply add confusion.

What is the policy in the other Apache projects?
