I've found case-insensitivity in buffer-name matching generated a lot of
annoying "conflicts" due to non-file buffers (e.g. *Group* and *grep*).

[I currently use case-insensitive at work, and case-sensitive at home :-]

Since there wasn't much choice in the past, I've not experimented with
other combinations, but I'd like to.
