  I understand the need to 'canonicalize' the input of svn:keywords. But
I have some thoughts.
  If a guy does a ps of "auTHoR", he must be new ( or is doing
destructive testing ;-) ).... so, for a new guy, if he does a ps of
"auTHoR" and on a pg, gets "LastChangedBy", it would be very confusing.
  I feel that if a user does a ps of "auTHoR",then on doing a pg, he
should get "Author". That is, the proper capitalized version of whatever
form on the keyword/alias he has specified.

  This is just a use-case view. Pl. comment.
