That explains why Windows programmers don't give a damn about camelcapping 
headernames. Any which way they're camelcapped, they're included anyway. It 
also explains why header names under UNIX are all lowercase. You can type 
them without the shift key. 

So, IMHO, the rule should stay what it is: filenames are always lowercase.
