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."
