Well, there is PEP 8, which has this to say on the subject:

"Package and Module Names

       "Modules should have short, all-lowercase names.  Underscores
        can be used in the module name if it improves readability.
        Python packages should also have short, all-lowercase names,
        although the use of underscores is discouraged."
