emacs -Q
M-x erc
Confirm irc.freenode.net
Confirm 6667
pick a random nick, no password
type /join #emacs
Pick someone in the users list with a nickname that begins with a caps
(for instance, Test), and type the first characters in his name in lower
case (for instance tes), then tab.

It used to complete to the capitalized nickname. What I think happened
is that this is now controlled by completion-ignore-case while it used
to be controlled by an erc-specific setting. I think a good way to
proceed is to introduce an erc-completion-ignore-case that defaults to
t, and ignore case in erc completion if either
erc-completion-ignore-case or completion-ignore-case is t. A specific
setting seems like a good idea because presumably some people will want
case-insensitive completion in erc but not elsewhere.
