What is "reasonable capitalization"?  I can see a case for 
capitalizing every word, I suppose (though I'd prefer 
capitalizing only "Just" and "Perl"), but what is the rationale 
for capitalizing "Hacker" but not "another"?  Unless you're 
writing German or 18th-century English or are related to the 
minister in "Yes, (Prime) Minister", it seems that "hacker" 
should be lowercase, like any other common noun.
