Quick question: why didn't you use camel case when writing "var todo"?

From what I understand, aren't we supposed to default to camel case when naming in order to ensure clarity? Is "todo" one of those exceptions that has a specific meaning in Swift, or is it just something like "goto" in DOS? Just curious. Thanks!

A lot of people (especially within programming) classify todo as single word, not two. In that case the name todo would follow standard camelCase rules.
