The problem is that unfortunatly not all users are that disciplined. Linux
users are very trained to be anal about case in filenames because their default
filesystem is case sensitive. But elsewhere too many people tend ignore the
issue or are not even aware of it: for them a patch using UPPERCASE.pd works
with [uppercase] in the patch as well, so why should they care?

So the reason I like to play it safe for abstractions I release into the wild
is not so much technical, but social.
