I went back and forth a bit on that at first.  After looking at all  
other fields being returned by metaWeblog.getPost by WordPress  
currently I found that dateCreated and permaLink were the only two  
fields that used camel case.  All other fields were either a single  
word or used underscores.  This seemed to be especially true of  
fields not part of the original spec, like mt_* and wp_*.  Based on  
that it went with the underscore.

Sorting should still work, in metaWeblog.newPost they are the only  
two field names that start with date.
