FWIW, there are already well-entrenched naming conventions which tend to

conventions for Zend Framework:


In short: a mix of underscores and CamelCaps :-)

Not even mentioning our own (osinet) coding conventions... I'll leave it to
the curious to look for them; they include a comparison of the conventions
in Drupal, ZF, PEAR, and our own style.
