Case preserving word replacement

Half way through my project, my people turned into dogs. Now I have to change everything in my source.

Start file
function Human() {

}

Human.prototype = {
	humanStuff: function(){},
	doHumanStuff: function() {
		useDigitalWatch();
	}
}
End file
function Dog() {

}

Dog.prototype = {
	dogStuff: function(){},
	doDogStuff: function() {
		useDigitalWatch();
	}
}
