Naming conventions in a Python library

Hello,
I'm implementing a search algorithm (let's call it MyAlg) in a python package. Since the algorithm is super-duper complicated, the package has to contain an auxiliary class for algorithm options. Currently I'm developing the entire package by myself (and I'm not a programmer), however I expect 1-2 programmers to join the project later. This would be my first project that will involve external programmers. Thus, in order to make their lifes easier, how should I name this class: Options, OptionsMyAlg, MyAlgOptions or anything else?

What would you suggest me to read in this topic except for http://www.joelonsoftware.com/articles/Wrong.html ?

Thank you
Yuri

I've cross-posted this question here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/168022/naming-conventions-in-a-python-library

I will update the answers in both places
