Which is better underscores or dashes ?

After Matt Cutts came out and said that dashes were better than underscores for ranking I have had a few people ask me to change their CMS systems to which I have said NO to. Now it’s not that I disagree with Matt, searches like HTTP_PROXY_CONNECTION, HTTP_USER_AGENT,
HTTP_REFERER or HTTP_COOKIE which I find myself searching more than things like “Which is better underscores or dashes” then I understand why Google should not class the underscore as a space or a word delimiter.. but

Which is better underscores or dashes
