It's purely historical. I've done it since the very first 2009.02_rc1
tag. I don't recall the details any more, but I think I did so to match
the convention from uClibc or busybox. The convention of those dates
back to when CVS was used, which had quite some restrictions on what
characters could be used in tags.

With that said, I don't have any problems with changing the underscores
(_) to hyphens (-) going forward.
