Description

In many cases, .HLL 'Donut' is the same as .HLL 'donut'; however, in some cases (e.g. ParrotInterpreter.hll_map()), it's not.

I recommend that to avoid any potential for confusion, we remove any case mangling and treat the HLL exactly specified in the directive.

If we get consensus on this, we can add a deprecation notice for 1.4 and change it immediately after release.

This is a very sane idea. Anyone with tuits is encouraged to file a deprecation notice to get the process going.
