Well, the obvious idea is to do that by lower-casing the words which fit these criteria
before further processing. Identifying the start of a sentence is difficult if you have to
take all possibilities for dots, question marks and exclamation marks into account, but
probably treating just the semi-obvious cases is enough (check whether you have e.g.
an abbreviation instead of an end-of-sentence dot), that's not too hard.
