Use whatever case gives you the greatest pleasure, or rather, best
matches the project name. There was a problem in MacPorts < 1.7.0
when the case of the port name did not match the case the user typed
on the command line. Users usually typed port names in all lowercase,
so ports that used uppercase letters caused problems for those users.
But now that MacPorts 1.7.0 has fixed that issue, there's no reason
not to use uppercase letters. We have 187 ports currently using
uppercase letters in their names.
