Announcing PyCs, a new Python-like language on .Net

Mark,

I'm really not the best person to advise you, but don't you think that
keeping the name Prothon (or a simple variation) would be the best
thing to do? I know that PyCs is a totally new beast, but Prothon is
not actually being used form practical stuff (as far as I know). So
naming it Prothon+ or something like that may be just fine. Even
Prothon may make the cut -- after all, you're going to keep the
prototype concept, aren't you?

Just my thought on brand dillution.

Carlos
