Duane Rettig suggests that the option -modern is not politically correct.
Also I am fearing that in 5 years this option might be as ridiculous as gcl's
notion of "new compiler" or the "new python" in sbcl.
Can you suggest other names for this behaviour (to set *print-case* to
:downcase and start up in a case-inverted, case-sensitive package)?

Other proposals? How about -mod-case ? -natural-case ?

Being subjective is OK; only terms like "new" and "modern" tend to become
