 Fixing the output and docs will cause input to gravitate that way by
 example, which is cool, yielding possible de-acceptance point in future.

 Looking around the net at various usage and rationales, lower case hex
 seems highly preferred these days... no visual character ambiguity,
 requires no keyboard or spoken shift key, no case insensitive flags to
 regexes or extra 'tolower'ing step, matches output of hash tools, etc.
