--- Comment #5 from Zbigniew Jędrzejewski-Szmek <zbys...@in.waw.pl> ---

The problem is that nobody can remember the exact casing of packages when
they're not using the package regularly, and a name like "jLEMS" or
"python-PyLEMS" is simply a PITA. For example, the name of the Python
project starts with an uppercase letter, but the package name is still
lowercase. Note that with pylems with have "py" and "Py" in the name of one
package.

It's the same story with dashes-vs-underscores: projects are not consistent,
and then it becomes hard to remember which one was used. Settling on a
consistent and easy-to-memorize policy avoids the issue.
