I am glad that you have started thinking about the module split.
- Why are the distributions named in CamelCase? Why not
'distribute.resources' instead of 'DistributeResources' (like, for
zope.interface instead of ZopeInterface).
Because the distribution name is not the packages names. See for instance the Paste project : PasteScript, Paste, PasteDeploy.
Incidentally, when I named these Setuptools had a bug with certain characters in the package names, like ".". So there wasn't much of a choice at the time.
