I think these are two independent features.  (The stand-alone reader
supports both.)  The problem is that sometimes you may wish to find an
all-lowercase string in a case-sensitive fashion; starting the regexp
with a capital letter doesn't help in that case.

I think `/' should be simply another binding for `Info-search', for
compatibility with the stand-alone reader.  Then, `s RET' and `/ RET'
will find the next occurrence (the former of these already works in
Emacs, and both work in the stand-alone reader).
