I'll reply to this one, but it also goes towards the other
guys pointing to the spec.  There isn't anything wrong with
storing both the sensitive and then keying off of a toupper
of the string, and chaining it off the end if the entry
already exists in the table (for multiple headers of the
same name).  One could even take the existing table code,
add a field for the toupper'd string, add a small adler32 (or
whatever cksum is to your liking) field, and get a lot 
better performance than we see now.  Of course I still
am no big fan of the API.
