Hi all,

You probably already know that our Parallels business devision 
responsible for Parallels Cloud Server, which is supported currently in 
libvirt as a "parallels" driver, was recently renamed to Odin [1].
As a part of this change our Parallels Cloud Server product name was 
also changed to Virtuozzo [2]. That said, we need to address this change 
in all publicly available products and projects and libvirt is not an 
Thus, I intend to do the following renaming:
1. connection uri from "parallels" to "vz",
2. driver directory and source files from "parallels" to "vz",
3. internal names (function prefixes, variable and other names) from 
"parallels", "prl" to "vz".

I would like to request for comments about proposed renamings, if they 
are affordable? If so, I will send the patch series shortly.
