Why's that? We shouldn't be using the more convenient notation because 
of a "maybe, sometime, someday there will be someone who misspells 
class names" argument? That is just so silly I can't help but lough as 
I'm writing this email. The whole argument of "but Windows developers 
type QwIdGet... oh, but only for includes, not code because they don't 
care" is so incredibly thin. 
So let me just be perfectly clear here: if people want to be using all 
lowercase includes, more power to them, but if anyone will come to me 
and tell me that I can't use a really convenient notation because 
somewhere out there in the beautiful prairies of unknown there's a 
windows developer who misscases class names I will get on a plane find 
that person and I will pee in their cereal.


P.S. This email has been brought to you by "stop the silliness due to 
coding conventions" foundation.
