Both options (keeping and updating the ezc prefix) have both pro and cons
and as far as I am concerned
I have no preference. However I think it is important not to confuse ZC
users and as such I would recommend to
provide some kind of FAQ explaining why the prefix is ezc for now, and what
are (of any) plans for the future.
Maybe a full page explaining the history of ZC, from eZ Components to Zeta
Components would help clarify
the context for new users. I can write such a page if you want.

Confused users became generally unhappy user after some period users, and
that we should definitely try to avoid.

What do you think ?
