I suppose I should clarify. When Manuel did the XML conversion, he
mistakenly thought that the "Title" of a package should be capitalized
and capitalized them all. But that's not what we wanted. We want the
package names to be the same as the upstream author uses.

Now, we've implemented this incorrect case into other areas of the
book. It's a bad commit, and needs to be changed. I'll do it right
