Thanks, I'll see if I can customize it this way. I looked at it once briefly.

I have had number of examples, but they are rather long, so I think it will be
better if I can provide a short example with the (rather lengthy pylint)
output that shows the problem.

I thought lots of people are using pylint and I would hear one way or
the other about the name checks (ie people agreeing or telling me I'm
way off  :) .. in which case perhaps my recollection/reading of PEP 8
is not accurate.
