Rather than Bio.UniProt.API, we should try to use lowercase
PEP8 module names (I think here .api would be better).

However, API seems to vague - how about www to be more
clear this is an online resource?

(Unlike the NCBI Entrez Utilities, there isn't a clear branding
for the UniProt web API is there?)
