This reminds me of written Sanskrit, which has no caps and in which words
in a phrase or sentence are run together as much as possible (with final
and initial symbols also sometimes combined as one). This is partly due to
the syllabic nature of the alphabet and partly because the writing was
invented to phonetically transcribe Vedic chants and song stories.

This might be a nice addition to Idle and PyWin editors, if possible.
