My point is that this can't be dragged forever. It's been more than 2 
months that 2.0 release is delayed because of this issue. I believe 
everybody has already expressed enough of their opinion for us to have a 
clear picture of the preferences. As there is an overhelming majority in 
favor of this rename, just go ahead and do it. Another vote against won't 
change anything. Philippe had a lot of opportunities to chime in over the 
last two months, but he never did, so I won't hold my breath.
