15:40 <toofishes> i'm sure it is used by a handful of people
15:41 <toofishes> i know it isn't the prettiest, but i don't have a good
reason to get rid of it (as it has been this way for a long time, we just
fixed the issues with i <-> I)

And vmiklos said it was probably used by many users :

I doubt that many users use it, since every keywords present in the default
pacman.conf have that same case format (RootDir, CacheDir, etc)
