I'm glad someone's packaging those :-)
There was a small discussion of this on the list a little while ago, and
I'm pretty sure the conclusion was that
"python-whatever_you_type_to_import_it_in_a_script" is the way to go.
Unfortunately the package naming guidelines are a little unclear on this
and Seth's guidance was to follow the perl guidelines. Unfortunately,
perl modules are usually more consistent in their "use" name and package
name than python modules. For some strange reason python modules
typically import as lower_case but package as CamelCase. Pfff.
Could someone add this clarification to the wiki?
