As far as I'm concerned I really don't care so long as the DBMS is
consistent on the matter.  Both Oracle & PostGreSql do that.

The short answer is no, you'll have to double quote or live with lower
casing.

The longer answer is that it is possible to hack the source code and
then 
recompile it, however no one has ever claimed to have run such a change
in 
any type of production system and there are several theories about
things 
that would break under such a configuration.
