Response to: Case sensitivity

Wow, I couldn't disagree more. Case sensitivity lets us do things like "Coproc coproc = new Coproc();", etc. Being able to use the same word, with different capitals, for a class and an instance of that class is very nice. I have no trouble hitting shift at the right moment so taking it out would give me nothing but a smaller name space.
