 Paludis currently creates it in uppercase and accepts either form. Portage
 only uses and accepts lowercase for this one file out of two dozen because
 it's a special snowflake.

 I don't care so much about emerge displaying broken output. Unfortunately
 everything that uses Portage's vdb API inherits this wonderful design
 decision - I found this bug because app-portage/pfl was completely broken.
