It seems that Bruce is feeling that it's unnecessary and possibly confusing, and I am now finding myself leaning somewhat towards that opinion myself, although if someone were to present a good example of a case where it might be useful, I might change my mind.

I would have expected no underscores at start or end, and no adjacent 
underscores. That seems like the main case.
