Another good point. Emacs has always made search case-insensitive by default
(`case-fold-search' is t), presumably for the same reason.
IMHO, it would be good for Emacs to handle this the same way it handles
case-sensitivity: off by default, with a simple toggle to turn it on.
`a' is no more the same as `A' than `è' is the same as `e'. But for many
(most?) search purposes it is handy to be able to treat them the same.
