pecl_http-v2 - http2 or httpi or http-*

I'm pondering to release v2 of pecl_http with a different extension name than "http", but I cannot agree with myself what's worse:

http2

This might be confused with HTTP/2.0

httpi

There's mysqli following this approach, but I think this is pretty odd.

Split it up

Split the package up in several smaller sub-packages, like:
  • http-common
  • http-env
  • http-client
  • http-client-curl
  • etc.
If you have an opinion, or maybe even a better idea, please leave a comment.

  1. http2 sounds pretty straight forward to me.

  3. keep the name, just change the version number.

  4. Change just the version, or split.
