You have the `ls-lisp-ignore-case' option to get what you want (and
`ls-lisp-dirs-first' if you are used to see the directories first, as
in the Windows Explorer).

As for changing the default, I disagree: I'm used to look for
upper-case file names near the beginning of the directory listing,
like they are on Unix.  I don't want to change my habits depending on
what OS I'm working.  (And what to do on a Unix filesystem mounted via
NFS or Samba?)
