That is easy to do.

An issue not mentioned in the PEP is naming conventions.  In recent
versions I have tried to consistently use mixedCase for functions and
methods (other than factory functions) because that is what threading
does (give or take settrace(), setprofile(), stack_size().)

I am certainly open to using lowercase/lower_case_with_underscores for
all functions/methods except for Process's methods and possibly
currentProcess(), but I would like some feed back on that.
