As there has been some discussion about uppercase commands I find it unfortunate that the main zutils page uses sometimes uppercase and sometimes lowercase because of start-of-sentence rules (which IMHO do not apply for command names): http://www.nongnu.org/zutils/zutils.html May I suggest to always use lowercase for clearance?
