Hmm, this will be an interesting brainstorming exercise ;-)

Some possibilities would be "Openmoko", "Neo", "GTA0x", "GTA01_02", or
maybe we could follow the 24xx example and just use the name of the
earliest member for which a given item applies, i.e., "GTA01" for GTA01
or GTA01+GTA02, and "GTA02" for GTA02-only.

Of course, "wildcard" names like "GTA0x" or even "Openmoko" would
probably cause a lot of changes for GTA04. In the same vein, many
"GTA01_02" would become "GTA01_02_03".

The most scalable is probably the 24xx approach, but then it can
also be hellishly confusing.

I guess the question is one of:

- Do we want to have a flag day when we break much of our user space ?
- Do we want to have "new" names plus lots of compatibility symlinks ?
- Do we want to do a phased transition that includes all of the above ?

Since this sort of transitions has ugly longs tails, I wouldn't
object to a bit of imperfection in this case ...
