Yikes! Paul?...

Fumata nera... no conclusive vote after three ballots.

And, from our friends at Fratres in Unum (sidebar), could we expect a Paul VII?

Globo – With the ongoing conclave in the Vatican, the expectation of the family of Card. Odilo Scherer grows as much as the matter becomes the only one mentioned in he streets of Toledo, western Paraná [state]. Though cautious about the election that will choose the new Pope, the siblings of the Brazilian Cardinal, who is among the front-runners, already guess the name that Odilo will choose if he is elected. "If it happens, it's Paul," bets brother Lotario Scherer.
