Many people confuse TYPO3 version 4.0 and later and speak of it as TYPO4. To accommodate these people and make their lives easier we should rename TYPO3 versions released since 4.0 to TYPO4. The new versions are thus TYPO4 1.0 (TYPO3 4.0), TYPO4 2.0 (TYPO3 4.1), and TYPO4 3.0 (TYPO3 4.2).

To make the step complete we of course need to rename class libraries like t3lib to t4lib and the typo3/ folder to typo4/, too.

Also thanks to the guy who already registered typo4.com for us!

Thanks Ingo for noticing it, this makes real sense!
I'll take care of it and submit the issue to the core list.

Nice idea.

But i think this will confuse all people having TYPO3-related sites. They have to register new domains as well as TYPO3 later sounds "outdated"
