SWIG has recently gained the ability to map names of methods between
different capitalisation conventions ("get_document" vs "getDocument" vs

I believe the latter is the convention in C#.  So I'm wondering if we
should make use of this new feature for the C# bindings.  The only
downside seems to be that you'll need to mentally translate when reading
the C# API docs.  Unless anyone has written much code using the C#
bindings, but I'd be suprised as they had a number of shortcomings which
I've only just addressed.  But if we are going to do this, now's the
time to.
