I also +1 this idea which is better than mine (disallow underscore
in module names).

They are different solution though, one requires no work at all, and
imposing the restriction in cvslog/project modules.

The other requires changes to Drupal core as well as contrib (perhaps
scripted ...)

Depends on how severe we think this problem is, and whether it
warrants change now ...
