I prefer title case for menus, but it ocurrs to me that if you want sentence
case always, that can be automatically generated (just drop all but the
first capital), whereas title case can't if it's used selectively.

So why not keep title (but make it consistent), and either auto-generate a
non-title file or just do it in the code?
