*Help* buffers downcase function arguments depending on the font in use
 (if it supports italics?).
Changing a buffer's contents based on the font is use is not appropriate
since we have multi-tty, the same buffer can be shown simultaneously in
an X11 frame and a tty frame, and the properties of the font used in the
X11 frame can be very different from the ones used in a tty frame.

So changing the buffer content _by_default_ is not a good idea.
AFAIK we do not do such a thing anywhere else in emacs.

I've installed the patch, defaulting `help-downcase-arguments' to nil
as per Dan's request in bug#4520.

If someone objects to the change in the default appearance of argument
names we'll know soon enough...
