Comment (by maltem):

 This does raise another question: Should upper case be allowed in package
 names at all?  It makes handling of packages a rather tedious task (was it
 openGL or Opengl or ...)  It's also interesting to note that most package
 maintainers tend towards all-lowercase, including the packages that came
 out of the base split.
