I converted a db from MS SQL, where tables and fields were CamelCase, and 
just lowercased the ddl to create the tables.

So table and fields names were all created in lowercase, but I didn't have to 
any of the application code: the SELECT statements worked fine with mixed case.

-- sample DDL
CREATE TABLE testtable
  fieldone int4
insert into TestTable (fieldone) values (11);

-- These statements will both work:

-- lowercase
SELECT fieldone FROM testtable;

-- CamelCase
SELECT FieldOne FROM TestTable;
