I hope the irony of discussing MediaWiki handling of CamelCase is not lost
on you.  I guess Dfarning doesn't hate CamelCase as much as some people do,
these appear to have came about during the massive (and largely excellent)
wiki-refactoring effort he undertook.  However, I do understand that in
general CamelCase is frowned on by "right-thinking people".  :-)
Personally, I sort of like CamelCase and encourage it's use (over spaces)
for filenaming within my firm's Windows environment.  This avoids the
occasionally painful refactoring that can come from later transfer to
removable media or web-based document management systems with their
restrictions on space characters in filenames or on filename length; but
when in Rome. . .

Ivan, this is the sort of thing (a CamelCase refactoring) that belongs
on the wikiteam "to do" list (http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/WikiTeam/TODO), I
wouldn't expect it to get the highest priority, but if you'll explain
Bitfrost to me sometime, I'll undertake some wiki standardization away from
CamelCase :-)
