 > I'm sorry you feel that way but these things (small errors that "upset
 the applecart") happen sometimes to everybody, me including.

 Oh, I'm always up for "upsetting the apple cart". But your words seemed to
 imply that we just changed Requests on a whim and put no thoughts into it
 whatsoever, and I certainly hope that neither @jrf nor I are giving the
 impression that that is how we operate.

 > So basically you're saying that changing the case in the names is an
 essential, irreplaceable part of Requests 2.0 and this cannot be changed
 again without throwing all the other work out?

 No, not at all. What I'm saying is that the current maintainers of
 Requests will not undo their work and change back the maintenance
 improvements they've made, as I'd consider this "making Requests worse to
 avoid having to make WordPress better".

 As rigid as WordPress may be, at the very least its ''upgrader process''
 (!) needs to account for **change** - the one constant that is always true
 for software projects. If it does not, it is failing its purpose.
