Having the words concatenated into a single string, for most
programming/scripting languages, is necessary or at least good practice.  I
know that there are many scripting languages that allow spaces, hyphens,
underscores, etc in the naming conventions, but, a standardized naming
convention shouldn't hurt.  Obviously, Applescript won't be rewritten to
suit these requirements(suggestions?).  But, Applescript is a rather odd
language when compared to many other scripting languages.  Pseudo-natural
language scripts do not seem too common in today's world.  I would imagine
that they are a nightmare for a script parser to understand, as well.
Humans and CPUs often don't think alike.
