[Bioperl-l] Annotations issue (GenBank)

I'm working on a GenBank patch and noticed a few cases where  
annotations are being stored as all uppercase strings (CONTIG, WGS,  
etc).  I'm planning on converting these to lowercase (e.g. 'wgs',  
'contig') for consistency with other annotation tag values.  I'm  
making sure output is consistent as well.

These are used fairly infrequently so I don't think it should cause  
problems, but just in case, does anyone have a problem with this change?
