I've updated pspp-mode.el in the pspp repository so that it has the

I've also added a long overdue change to make the keywords case

     Hi Stefan, hi Vasilij,
     thanks for your response regarding PSPP mode for emacs in GNU Elpa. I 
think we can simply copy pspp-mode.el to elpa.git and do the necessary 
modifications there. The keyword list comes from the SPSS command syntax which 
is also described here:
     SPSS is a commercial statistics software from IBM and PSPP is a GNU free 
software replacement for SPSS.
