I think the idea is that the Wiki is following the conventional
behavior of putting wiki links with mixed-case proper name, like
OpenSSL.  We could probably switch to one of two conventions:

1.  Always use the proper package name, as listed upstream.  This is
what we do in the <application> tags in the book.

2.  Use the package id as in the book, as it's referenced with <xref>.
