As if this were a democracy, I'll just chime in "I agree" :-).  Brueck
does a great job of explaining exactly why capitalized contstants aid

Maybe I'm tainted by having already used it in a dozen languages before
Python... hmmm, do you think there is a reason those dozen languages all
use the same convention?
