And if you want another one how about the inconsistent use in class names:

TimeZone for java - implies space before Z
timezone in python - wouldn't it be time_zone if a space was implied?

That aside - most documentation and names seem to assume 2 words rather 
than 1.

Even google offers you

Did you mean: */time zone/*
