"Persona" is now the official name, "BrowserID" is obsolete/deprecated.

I'm not sure about this. I think BrowserID is the protocol, and Person is Mozilla implementation of it.

No, I just heard otherwise from a Mozilla guy:

Jens,
It's Persona all the way down. BrowserID was the old, and not fully eradicated name. 

Regards,

@snej snej Rename "BrowserID" --> "Persona"
Note that this invalidates all saved persistent replications that used Persona/BrowserID auth,
because the property in the replication doc was renamed too.
It also changes the server endpoint that the replicator hits to log in from /db/browserid to /db/persona.
Fixes #25.
