Have you considered sticking "Professional" or "for Developers" on the
original product and letting the light version carry the original name?
Or how about adding "II" (Roman numeral two) to the light version? When
Ford came out with a smaller version of their Bronco, they called it the
Bronco II. (I think...if I'm wrong, someone will correct me. 8-)
