Rotate Case command suggestion

Everyone points out that the argument should be the number of words to
operate on.  Well, that's logical and philosophically consistent with
the rest of the editor, but I suspect it isn't very useful.  I liked
my suggestion of having arguments modify the definition of a "word",
e.g., as if Atom Word Mode were on.  However, the chances of anyone
but me ever using that may be slim -- after all, a user will bother to
learn only so many special-case hacks.  (Do @i<you> ever use c-U c-U
c-Space?)  So perhaps consistency should take precedence.

Another suggestion: if there's a region, the command should operate on
the whole region, and leave it turned on.  I, for one, much prefer
marking things with the mouse to counting words.
