Well, the way the guidelines are now is that _ can only be used as part
of the upstream name, and not as a separator. So, if the upstream name
is HTML_Javascript, then the package can be either:

php_pear_HTML_Javascript is not acceptable, because _ should never be
used as a separator.

Unless you're proposing that PHP be excepted from these rules, I'm
inclined to simply leave the guidelines as is.
