There is a reason why the whole compiler sources are lower case: the sources are
rather complex with a lot of nested ifs etc. so we use a very high screen
resolution to edit the source. I use usually 70 lines on a 17" TFT or 19" CRT
and such high resolutions are much easier to read if everything is lower case
because it makes the  distance between lines bigger.
