No need to make a locale pack, it is too resource intensive for such a 
simple task. This is a themeing issue. We theme menu items and page titles 
at weblabor.hu to be uppercase (not relying on CSS, but doing uppercasing 
in PHP).

Default menu link theme function:

function theme_menu_item_link($item, $link_item) {
   return l($item['title'], $link_item['path'], 
array_key_exists('description', $item) ? array('title' => 
$item['description']) : array());

Our menu link theme function:

function azigazi_menu_item_link($item, $link_item) {
   return l(wllib_ucfirst($item['title']), $link_item['path'], 
array_key_exists('description', $item) ?  array('title' => 
$items['description']) : array());

Look, it is so easy. Note that this is Drupal 4.6 theme code used on 
Weblabor.hu. In Drupal 4.7, you have a built in drupal_ucfirst() function 
to use. The wllib_ucfirst() function is our custom library function for 
this, but does just the same.

To be honest, the above code does not fix lowercase menu items in help 
text, but it was a nonissue for us.
