Please don't do this.  Almost every package I've seen uses lowercase for
com, org, etc.  Below is support taken from the 0.5 release of the
Swing package from Sun for using lowercase for com, org, etc.

-NOTE: There have been questions about the use of the letters "com" in
-names instead of "COM", as defined in the Java Language Specification. To 
-resolve these questions, the JavaSoft division of Sun Microsystems Inc. has 
-determined that the JLS will be updated to recommend the use of "com", and
-is why this proposal uses it. Starting with JDK 1.2, non-core packages
from Sun 
-Microsystems will be prefaced with "com.sun" . (The use of the word "java"
-"com.sun.java.swing" does not follow Sun's new conventions, but this
-recommends that it be used to show the linkage between the two packages.)
