Hey François,

I understand your pain. Have you read "The Paradox of Choice" by Bary
Schwartz? Sounds as if you (like me) are a Maximizer on this kind of
thing :-). As a fellow sufferer, let me put you out of your misery and
choose for you:

First, let's acknowledge the primary raison d'etre of capitals is to
enhance ease of reading by making one class of word stand out in an
environment where -- crucially -- more than one class of word may be
present (e.g. starts of sentences in block of prose, or constants
(say) in code).

So here, it doesn't really matter. Therefore, let's make ease of
"writing" be the deciding factor.

Best (it would be even better if that underscore was a hyphen but we
can't have everything).


Next best

Worst. Yeah, yeah, it's "correct" but I'm not hitting Shift three
times when I can hit it no times :-)
