The naming scheme isn't CamelCase but (for class names) uppercase
letters separated with underscores.
The top-level modules use (usually) three letter acronyms because
they're used very often.

If you mean the leading underscores in the module names: We're using
some metaclass magic and it's a compromise to navigate namespaces
without underscores and have a single underscore in the import
statement. This generally avoids double names like e.g.
