For me it's not a small issue because I have to read every line of
FDORDBMS code that will play with my FDO PostGIS driver.
So, it's helpful when I can see for a toke and know what's this.
For example:
FdoUpdateTest::MainFdoUpdateTest (FdoIConnection* Conn)

here, inside this function, Conn is named as a type (upper-case)
and yesterday, first I started to grep for the class definition,
before I did get up to this function prototype and learned
that it's a pointer.

I also prefer option 2., so I'll use it.
