    3 While we work to define the scope of this project, Haskell' (Haskell
    4 Prime) will be the code name for the next Haskell standard.  I thought
    5 it best to pick a neutral name, since "Haskell 2", "Haskell 06",
    6 "Haskell 1.6", and "Industrial Haskell" are all loaded names.  Once a
    7 scope is defined, we can start to worry about the real name of the
    8 standard.

    10 == Ideas for the "real" name ==
    11 Add new ideas for the name, or add comments to existing suggestions.

    13  * '''Haskell Prime'''
    14    * It is the main version of the language for users, as well as the follow-on to Haskell 98.
    15  * '''Haskell 2'''
    16    * The second official standard for the language. Allows naturally for a Haskell 3 at some point in the future.
    17    * Boring. But maybe that's a good thing.
    18  * '''Concurrent Haskell'''
    19    * Emphasizes its relevance and applicability for multicore applications

     3Haskell' (pronounced "Haskell Prime") is the name for the ongoing [wiki:Process] of developing a new language revision each year.  It is not the name of a particular version of the language.
