This suprised me as well in kdelibs. So much loss of information due to 
people being used to using lowercase. Face it; "otheritemobserver" takes 
a lot more effort to read than "OtherItemObserver".  Thats why we name 
classes to include uppercase, right?

Not too long ago we had a thread where the outcome was to alter new code 
to the new coding style. What about allowing modern filenaming schemes 
that convey more information? After all it is what people coming from 
school today are used to (as its the Java standard, which is the main 
programming language for most schools).

Consistency is good. Using all the features at your disposal to convey all 
info you can is even better.
