dependancies are based on CSWname, not software name, so it should "do the
right thing". The places where it will break, are where admins may have
saved procedures, that do things like:

machine1$   pkg-get -l >save-list
  #time passes...
machine2$   pkg-get -i `cat save-list`

Not to mention, changing softwarename is kinda a pain for me to deal with.
But if there are "only a few", then all right.

WITH THE EXCEPTION that, as someone noted, things with actual recognized
name of "pyfoo", should REMAIN "pyfoo", not be artificially split to be
"py_foo" in that case.
