When I also capitalize them when they begin a sentence, at least in our french translations. But that's highly debatable and I usually avoid beginning a sentence with a command or package name to avoid that. > we use uppercase for a name like "Exim", the way I understand it is > that we're referring to "Exim the software project".

I prefer b) despite the drawback you point out.
