  Has it not yet dawned on you that you can mechanically translate between
  the two conventions?  When you type these things in, just type - instead
  of the shift key.

  One reason to prefer the Lisp style is that you type a-s-c M-tab and get
  anti-studly-caps.  I have yet to see any abbreviation mode that takes BSC
  and returns BogusStudlyCaps.  This is, of course, because the retarded
  studly-caps convention is /ambiguous/ in its use of case.
