Case-folding is a much simpler situation than sorting/searching (you
need to use the same algorithm for both). It's not minimally simple,
but it's simple.
Nor does it really make sense to have localized rules for the syntax
of programming languages.
What is the sound of Perl? Is it not the John Cowan
sound of a [Ww]all that people have stopped cowan at ccil.org
banging their head against? --Larry http://www.ccil.org/~cowan
