I hope yes since this was not the past agreement.

In the past versions of this conversation, the general agreement is that
going forward we should probably standardize on underscores to seperate
words. So, NO_FOO rather than NOFOO. However, no_volunteer has come
forward to do the work you've described, so if you're volunteering....

I'd volunteer w/ "Ruslan Ermilov" and even do the job.

the purpose of the original thread was to convert "all" variables to one
form or another, not just some of them for some or other reason.
in one word... be consistant, it's help.
it's not my fault if only some "no conforming" variables regarding all
others are used in so many makefiles.

PS : this patch is a transition patch, it doesn't break anything.
