camelCase differs from StudlyCaps in the case of the first character
(that is, XmlNodeSansChildren is *not* camelCase).
You missed the African gender prefix "ba-".
You will note that "baStudlyCaps" also does not start with a capital.
But you will also note that people talk a great deal about "camel case"
when they are referring to Java class names, which *do* begin with a
capital letter.  Think of XmlNodeSansChildren as a three-humped camel
with its head raised, and xmlNodeListSize as a three-humped camel with
its head lowered.  Same kind of weird off-world camel.
