Case-sensitivity: why -- or why not? (was Re: Damnation!)

Scientists, engineers, etc -

Common sense.  Just common sense.  Undertaking an effort to
learn programming is approaching a new game with new rules.
TYPE <> type <> Type, etc.  A rule. You got say 400 hundred to
deal with.  This particular rule is one of the easy ones.
And kids are open to games with rules.  Just help them understand what the
rules are.

Split the Python community by going case insensitive, and what
you've accomplished is narrow the problem to the 399 other
rules.

And I have read the Alice dissertation.
