 Except: d.vect currently has both bgcolor= (label background color) and
 bcolor= (label border colour). If these were changed to background_color
 and border_color, bcolor would be rejected as ambiguous.

 Another possibility with regards to abbreviating compound words would be
 to use an upper-case letter (rather than a specific character, such as the
 single quote in the previous example), so backGround_color would work like
 back_ground_color but arguably isn't quite as ugly. Similarly, "columnS"
 doesn't seem as bad as column_s.
