[texhax] upper/lowercase with autoref?

Hi all,

I like \autoref from the hyperref package and often use it. For a german 
text, it is great, becase all *names (\figurename, \tablename etc.) are 
always uppercase. However, in an english text, lowercase stays 
lowercase, and fixed uppercase is not always wanted. See this example:




\caption{A figure.}

I did not find a way to allow uppercase and lowercase versions at the 
same time. However, this should not be done automatically, but, e.g. 
with a macro \Autoref vs. \autoref, the first one always using 
uppercase, the second one always lowercase. A first, very naive try was 
to say something like


but that did not work at all.

So – did I just miss the corresponding section in the documentation? Af 
not, is there a (preferably simple) way to achieve what I want?
