Please, if you provide initial letter capitalization,
don't make it hard to turn on and off.
I dislike the capitalize initial letter feature. It gets
in the way when I type single letter variables, say
in "for loops" in notes for programming classes.
Neverthless, not everthing is a program, so
sometimes I find it useful.
Regarding implementing initial letter capitalization
feature as a plugin. Does this feature require a lot
of code? That would justify using a plugin, unless
plugins cannot be added or removed while the program
is running. Restarting or worse reinstalling to enable or
disable this feature would be unreasonable.
