Consistency is the key.  I've gone from SUSE to centOS, to Debian (Jessie) and each had differences that always produced that magical "WTH?" moment.  Picking a schema and applying it across the board is a real step in the right direction.  From an esthetic viewpoint I like "MailScanner" better, but when working from the command line it's definitely nicer to use all lower case.  Words starting with a capital don't bother me, but camel case is a bit annoying.  It's a minor nit, but I'd vote for a wholescale replacement of MailScanner to mailscanner except maybe in the documentation where it's used as a proper noun.

Thanks for all your hard work Jerry.  It may be often unacknowledged but never unappreciated...
