Hm, why not simply add a property :ignore-case to the PROPS a function
in `completion-at-point-functions' may return in addition to the
existing :predicate and :annotation-function?  Then
`completion-at-point' could simply bind `completion-ignore-case'
according to that property when calling `completion-in-region'.
