Sorry - I meant to explain more but was multi-tasking and messed up :-(

In grammatically correct English, only the first word of a sentence
should be capitalised, but looking at other software like XCode and
Firefox, it seems it's not that simple. In fact, as I'm trying to
write this, I'm struggling to see a pattern in either of those apps -
for example, in XCode's preferences pane I see options like:

Automatically Suggest
Suggestion delay
Default File Encoding
Tab indents

So, I think we should use English rules, and only capitalise the first
word, *except* for following words which have special meaning because
they are SQL keywords for example, or acronyms.

Probably better, if only to keep the commit logs focused on one change.

I can't say I'm that excited about that. It's probably safer for them
to create the new index manually and then drop the old. I suppose we
could create, drop, rename, but there's still something about the idea
that gives me the heebie-jeebies.
