I agree, but what about new libraries which are entirely written in C#?
Although I hate giving proprietary software any advantage whatsoever, I
think gaining widespread acceptance of our extensions (i.e. making them
the de facto standard) takes precedence, so something like dotgnu-base
should be all LGPL and/or GPL+LE.

I'd have to agree here; hitting the shift key is both slow and annoying.
All lower case is also more "aesthetically pleasing" (to me at least); I
prefer all lower case.
