This results in the underscores also ending up in the Provides. I
don't think that's a good thing as IIRC rpm's version comparison does
not treat it the same way as perl does. So for example for module
version spelled as 0.95_01 the Provides would also be perl($something)
= 0.95_01. I suppose allowing the underscore would be ok if it would
be sanitized before output, i.e. 0.95_01 would result in Provides
perl($something) = 0.9501
