OK - I'm not the one to ask permission from, but I doubt very much that
a flame war will erupt because of a patch to make things in the manual
more uniform (of course, there will have to be a notation somewhere, if
one is not there already, that capitalization does not matter in these
cases: it's easy to infer that when all the examples are in various
forms of capitalization, but harder when everything is uniform - as you
can see, uniformity is not an unmitigated blessing :-) ).
