If you're trying to settle on some file naming convention for
source files (*.[ch]) files, you might consider being consistent
with *.py files as well (though CamelCase is more accepted
there), since I believe you have a good number of those floating
around (146?). And since the latter (*.py) can't have -s
(dashes/hyphens) for import's sake (though some of them appear
to), you might be better off going with _ (underscores) across
the board.
