I agree with Gregor and Vern.  Changing the style for event and function names in the shipped scripts would be a big change (mentally and code-wise).  

Taking Vern's point one step further about functions and events being isomorphic; functions and events are still just variables so keeping them with the same style as variables actually makes a lot of sense.  That's actually why I didn't specify functions and events originally.  I should have point that out though.  Try printing a function sometime if you want to see what I mean. :)
