I was trying to "fix" all the names, as you suggested, but.... I'm
noticing this:
neither Python classes follow this rules :(

For example:

from HTMLParser import HTMLParser <--- package name in upper case...
urllib2.Request(url, data) <---- method name in upper case...

first they suggest name convention and then they're the first one not
following them? This really sucks :)
