[gmx-developers] no delimiters in file names from 5.0?

It has recently come up that the direction 5.0 is moving toward is no
delimiters in file names, i.e. no underscores.

I personally think no delimiters is detrimental (unless one uses DOS).
Just compare the readability of
gmx_detect_hardware.c vs gmxdetecthardware.c
nbnxn_cuda_kernel_utils.cuh vs nbnxncudakernelutils.cuh

I'm not saying that somebody should change/fix this ASAP, but it may
be worth considering whether this is really what we want.
