I don't know but i agree that the binding-naming is quite unpythonic
and clumsy.

FWIW i'd welcome this and just doing the above renaming

        X.Y.X_Y_method -> X.Y.method

would make quite some sense. Of course, there are some scripts within
the upcoming subversion distribution that would need to be upgraded
as well. But it is largely automatic and the work on this could probably
be "outsourced" to some volunteer pretty easily, i guess.

Is the same naming scheme used by other bindings like Java?
