[Distutils] setuptools or PyPI problem...?

I don't know which side this belongs to, but I had a problem when I 
tried to create a package with a "-" in it ("Paste-Deploy").  setup.py 
register worked fine, and created a "Paste-Deploy" project; however, 
when I did an upload it created a "Paste_Deploy-0.1.tar.gz" file, and 
PyPI wouldn't accept it, I believe because it thought it belonged to the 
(nonexistant) Paste_Deploy project.  In the end I just smushed the words 
together, but I figure this really should work.  I don't know if it's 
setuptools (or distutils) that is uploading to PyPI incorrectly, or PyPI 
that is mismatching projects.
