It is marginally nicer I'd agree. But since all the options will be
specified in the template config file (or GUI), I'd say that
understandability would be the primary aim.
But I can live with TCP.Send-Packets-Immediately quite happily.

Unfortunately however, Java's property system is case-sensitive. I'm
using the built-in properties file parser, but I needed to add case-
independent matching myself.
