Hi Kevin, 
I was thinking - "-" instead of "_" is not good for people who use 
Pythonaand perl scritps either -
so what if the PDB browser in the GIMP would have a drop down list, 
for one to pick the up the languyage taht suits oneself best, and 
then display it as apropriate  ("-" for script-fu /tiny-fu 
developers, "_"for python, no  "GIMP_" prefix for either) ?
