60% isn't "far more".  Regardless of whether we change this (dashes are
easier to read, easier to type, and are what English normally uses --
underscores are for when you can't use a dash for technical reasons),
let's not start making rules based on weak statistical inferences.

Plus, why limit the search to drivers?  E.g. if you looked at arch/
you'd reach the opposite conclusion.
