Glad to hear it. I will think about it also. Maybe one of us (someone) will get
around to trying something out.

Some care needs to be taken to allow user control over this, IMO - exceptions,
etc. The last thing we would want is something that doesn't let you impose
case-sensitive matching when you are sure that is what you want. IOW, we
shouldn't assume you necessarily want generous matching - you might sometimes
want completion to fail if there is no case-sensitive match.
