Bug Description

My credit card companies write everything in UPPERCASE, which is annoying because it's less readable, takes more space, and feels like someone is shouting at you :)

Instead of manually fixing every transaction, I'd like to be able to tell homebank to convert the casing for me during import, with the choices to have:

- Sentence case (only the 1st letter of the 1st word)
- Caps at Each Word Except the Particles*
   * (like in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capitalization but maybe I'm dreaming.
      Normal casing with a capital on each word could be acceptable if you want something simpler)

In fact it is the php equivalent to:
ucfirst
ucword

not sure I will do the 2nd, but will have a look at ucfirst
