Well, I know we have some guidelines about that.. But imo i think 
'content-builder.module' is way much better than 
'content_builder.module'.. Inside the code we should prefix the function 
offcourse with the '_' form, but in the filename we should use '-'.. 
it's nicer and reads easier for non-coders..
