Which is what I not too seriously claim is inconsistent. I was trying to
give a silly example where in one case, having all caps is a reading problem
and underscores have to be used to split word boundaries, e.g. MAXWIDTH vs.
MAX_WIDTH, and in the other case, for class names, nothing is mentioned
XMLDOMReaderThing or's VMSFTPEntryParser vs. an imaginary nasty
VMS_FTPEntryParser (or VM_SFTPEntryParser? ;-)
