Also I noted that the intel driver current uses BACKLIGHT as the
property name - I thought we all agreed that we wouldn't use any
ALL_CAPS names any more. Is this a left-over, or just an oversight?

And how to deal with this? Renaming this to Backlight in the driver
probably won't do any good, as some tools are already using the
BACKLIGHT one. Shall the implementation provide both cases for a while?

Also xbacklight should probably be changed to use Backlight if possible.
