No, it is not. There are systems that do use the lower case names.

If you think this bug is easily solved, why didn't you provide a patch
for this bug yet? You already had about 2 years to come up with

Oh, right. You don't want to create a bugzilla account... Wait. You just
sent a mail to this list. So you could have sent a patch or any comment
here too. You didn't...

Judging from your recent comments and behavior, Free Software seems to
be a one-way thingy to you. It's free for you to use, but you don't
bother fixing or at least discussing issues for the benefit of others...

btw, GNU is not UNIX. And GNU is not Linux either. So please, take your
braindead comments about Linux and your world elsewhere.
