[Grok-dev] naming conventions

Hi there,

Philipp and I had some discussion about naming conventions as a result 
of the applyChanges versus apply_changes debate. We've decided to go 
back to the Zope 3 conventions for method names. I've checked in a file 
in doc/naming_conventions.txt which describes our naming conventions.

For class annotations (grok.local_utility) we break with Zope 3 
tradition and use underscores.

The only decision still deferred is what naming convention to use for 
top level functions in modules (that are not defining class 
annotations). Zope uses camelCase (getUtility). Grok internally now uses 
under_scores, but we don't expose those yet to the outside world. What 
to do here? Perhaps we'll defer the discussion until we actually have 
some non-class annotation top-level functions to expose.
