To the risk of sounding basic and boring, could someone remind me what 
the rationale is behind choosing a different from FF naming scheme ? 
Why did we reject Thunderbird Aurora ? Nightly (I can vaguely remember 
a timezone argument)
I wouldn't see too much of an issue in having a uniform naming scheme 
across the board ie TB Nightly/TB Aurora/RB Beta. We share so much in 
the release process that it actually might simplify things and help 
avoiding a lot of mistakes...
I guess that we don't need to be different just for the sake of being 
different, but that's my $0.02... and not so much fun, I agree.
