I wonder whether differences in phonetic versus eidetic ability has any
effect on programming language choice? 

However, I always thought that some programming languages were
case-insensitive because they started life on 7-bit teletype terminals
(or maybe due to the 3-out-of-12 hole punching scheme used on Hollerith
cards)?
