True. Still. I think it's harder. And I remembered why there was a reason to 
keep the names lowercase. Not all filesystems are case-sensitive and  
non-camelcapped names are easier to type. I know it might seem like a nit, 
but I think it would be unwise to go against what numerous people and 
software packages have established as a standard.
