[plt-scheme] string-upper-case

IIRC there used to be a function in Unlib that tried to correctly
capitalise names. E.g. "Van Dyke" vs "van Dyke". I see this as a step
towards what you propose. Of course cats are more difficult than
humans, having three names (of distinct classes) as Old Possum
explains. So the question becomes which class do you capitalise? A
vexing problem indeed.
