Why would that be necessary ? IMHO, having two names for two very
distinct events is perfect. At the moment you know that PyCon means US
and EuroPython means Europe. I would welcome PyAsia or LatinaPy,
etc. and try to get there. But if every Python Conference is named
PyCon, you'll have:

A: Will I meet you at PyCon 2007 ?
B: Which one, the one in Europe or the one in the US ?
A: EuroPyCon.
