Autocomplete may help you write code faster and reduce the burden of memorizing method names (for example) but it still doesn't change the fact that other developers will probably require slightly more effort reviewing/understanding your code just because there is a random mix of camelCase and snake_case.

The most likely person to review my php code is someone who also knows php.

And if I'm using a library whose author preferred camel case along with another library whose author preferred snake case, the problem still exists independent of PHP's inconsistencies.
