I almost feel bad reporting this, but here goes.

The summary() for lm() (and possibly others?) uses a capitalized `S' in Multiple
R-Squared but a lowercase `s' in Adjusted R-squared. For instance,

Residual standard error: 0.5608 on 202 degrees of freedom
Multiple R-Squared: 0.2308,     Adjusted R-squared: 0.2232 
F-statistic:  30.3 on 2 and 202 DF,  p-value: 3.103e-12 

Perhaps they both ought to be lowercase? Again, truly trivial but perhaps it
adds to the overall polish...
