That's been my experience with using a few implementations of Scheme
which are both [contrary to the standard] case-sensitive and lower-case
for all the built-in symbols. People still use hyphens instead of
underscore or studly caps. In fact, case is almost a non-issue *except*
when (1) interfacing to C code or (2) using "read" on external files
produced by some other program.
