Originally, the objects in Max/MSP had capitals, but that changed a long
time ago. Some time back (can't find it now) there was a discussion on
this at the list and the conclusion was that the objects should also be
available in lower case. Apparently this never happened.

When I find the discussion again, and the reasoning is still sound, I
could try to implement it.
