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.

Nope. The environment variable's name is in uppercase.
