Okay, you piqued my curiousity. Care to share why you need a
lowercased package name?

AFAIK, lowercase package names are pragmas by convention, but (like
damn near everything else in the language) isn't actually enforced in
any fashion.

Nor is there anything necessarily special about them. For example, the
'vars' pragma. Nothing magical in there at all.
