:capitalize in *print-case*

    I think that the manual means what it says here: lower-case characters
    don't get touched, regardless of the setting of this switch.

I agree.  Note that the manual clearly states that this switch does not
affect printing when vertical bar syntax is used and that internally
lowercase characters are printed in lowercase with an escape (backslash
or vertical bar).

An implementation where *print-case* changes what appears inside vertical
bars is incorrect.
