I wouldn't rely on capitalization to differentiate between packages. I think
that Python will be able to do so in most circumstances, even on Windows, but it
makes it hard to talk about the different packages and ask questions about them
on the mailing lists.

that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had
an underlying truth."
