For legibility. It's consistent with our variable naming convention,  
and separating the individual words help non-English speakers who can  
babelfish individual words to figure out what a particular thing is

I know of no such problems. The only thing I can think that would  
cause a problem is if you named a function something like  
my_module_insert and Drupal mistook it for a node insert hook when it  
was just a helper function or something. But mymodule_insert would  
have exactly the same problem.
