I wasn't sure if _ and - are consistently exchanged. As you see in the
list the the package name are with - while the directory on the disks
are with _. So there might be packages that have a - in the directory
name which will break my fix again.

The version string is quite fixed in it's format. So it might be
possible to define a regular expression for the version information and
matching against <projectname>-<versionexpression>.{egg|dist)-info.
This whould be the premium solution. But I hadn't had the time to look
into it.
