Hi all,

[ beeing a nitpicker in this issue ;) ]

I've noticed that several programs write their usage message as "usage: ..."
while others do "Usage: ..." (capitalized).  Doing some greps, it seems that
the preferred way in the tree is the former.  There are 120 files using the
later format.

Do you feel it is worth to homogenize them all?  (got a diff, but somewhat
big to be posted here).  I prefer it in lowercase.  Any objections to change
