FWIW, I'd prefer the underscore not be used, but the guidelines
currently permit it, assuming it is inherited from upstream's naming.
However, given that practically all other packaged PHP modules use -, I
could see the merit in requiring PHP packages to replace - with _. Is
that what the PHP SIG is asking for FPC to approve?
