dired-do-shell-command from dired-aux.el doesn't mention the variables
dired-guess-shell-alist-default and dired-guess-shell-alist-user
because these variables are defined in a separate package dired-x.el.

The case-sensitivity of file extensions is controlled by the variable
dired-guess-shell-case-fold-search.  Last week I sent a patch to
emacs-devel that makes this variable customizable, but seems my patch
has gone into the deeps of /dev/null.
