[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.
