[Pulp-dev] PyPI names for Pulp3

I think that we can actually go with pulp_platform. PyPI will normalize
this to pulp-platform.

Basically, it boils down to this sentence from PEP 426:

"All comparisons of distribution names MUST be case insensitive, and MUST
consider hyphens and underscores to be equivalent."

This is a confusing topic, because the most specific resource on this is
PEP 426 which has not been accepted yet. We can be reasonably certain that
the name portion of it is canon anyway, because it is referenced by
accepted PEPs, including PEP 503.
