The PDB browser in the current CVS copy of GIMP now uses - instead of _ in 
procedure names. That is a step in the right direction, IMHO. It still shows 
the wrong form of named constants as far as Script-Fu writers are concerned.

To use named constants shown in the PDB browser output you need to drop the 
leading GIMP_ and change any remaining _ to -. For example, the named constant 
GIMP_MAKE_PALETTE as shown in the PDB browser should be MAKE-PALETTE in script 

I discussed this with the GIMP developers some time back suggesting that PDB 
brower show things from the point of view of Script-Fu. They didn't want to 
change it. As a result, it continues to show its C oriented plug-in roots and 
confuses some users who want to try their hand at writing or modifying their 
first Script-Fu script.
