PEP-8 calls for "short, all-lowercase names" for packages:

On the other hand, The Hitchhiker's Guide to Packaging 1.0, under
"Background," declares "come up with a CamelCase project name":

On PyPi, of course, there is great variation. At this point is there a
more formal recommendation for a package naming convention?
