I'm creating a package for ez-ipupdate, a client for dynamic DNS
services such as dyndns et al.  

I have a problem with the rc.d script ez-ipupdate that I wrote for it.
Environment variables apparently may not contain dashes:
> ez-ipupdate=YES: not found

How should I name my script then?  ezipupdate, ez_ipupdate or something
like that may confuse the user, as the package and the binary are called
