Yes, that's what I had in mind.  AFAIK, only the Windows port routinely 
sets completion-ignore-case to non-nil.

However, since working with multibyte strings means we need to decode 
each file name returned by readdir, to address Richard's concerns, I'd 
like to try to avoid decoding even if completion-ignore-case is non-nil.  
So, could you please tell what is the best method of deciding whether 
file-name-coding-system is the one for which the current unibyte 
case-conversion tables are set up?
