I don't care either way, but as Thomas already outlined, both the
openchrome doc and the xorg doc mandate pure camelCase.


As Thomas is in the middle of a big rework, maybe his opinion is worth
special attention. Thomas, what do you think ?

Thomas, about the standardization, and whatever standard is choosen,
would it be okay with you if both trunk and ttm_branch are patched at
the same time ?

Gabriel, is there anything left in the randr_branch that has not been
merged and might worth giving it the same treatment, or is it okay to
let it die ?

I'm reviving this thread as Robbie has a script to do the conversion and
Jon feels it's mandatory to do the standardization before continuing his
work on proper randr support.
