I agree - modulo telling people about it.  Could you announce the time
at which you're going to do it at least 48 hours in advance, so that
mirror people can read their email and then do the rename between
mirror runs ?

I propose "Diaspar" (as mentioned by Richard K. a little while ago).
We can name the next release "Trantor" or perhaps "Lys".

This is exactly what we're doing with the codenames, as RJK has
