I know the the Haskell Platform is in the spot-light at the moment but
please do not mix it in into name conventions as well!  Different
packages can provide modules with the same name, so it seems perfectly
reasonable to let programmers choose the names for their modules.
PS: Having lived in the US for a while I would prefer Color to Colour
but obviously that is not particularly important.
