CL already has *read-case*. The problem is, if you set it to case
sensitive, you have to refer to stuff in the CL package, via |PROGN| or

IMHO both modes could happily coexist with some package magic on the
implementer's side, but all the (intern (string-upcase ...)) code would
have to be fixed to check #.*read-case*
