the planet should have had lower case as well, i just didn't update
the program to reflect the changes in the database.

if anyone finds anywhere in the API or any other output of the server
where we're "leaking" the capitalised member types, let me know and
i'll fix it. everything should have stayed lower case, as it
previously was.

you couldn't possibly have made it any uglier than it already was ;-)
