It needs to be renamed to be consistent with the naming convention we use
in LayoutTests and the rest of the WebKit directories (e.g. ChangeLog,
Skipped, etc...). Besides files in webkitpy, few tests, and maybe few other
files, we don't use underscore delimited file names. I even think that we
shouldn't use it in webkitpy either but that's an orthogonal issue.

I'm signing up to do the work since I've been always annoyed and nobody has
signed up to do it so far.
