Store the same text under two different fields in the same index, one 
with an Analyzer w/CaseFolder (foo_lc) and one w/o (foo_cs).

Then your query parser can expand your query to an 'OR' search for both 
fields. The alias_for feature in Search::Query::Parser could help:

  my $parser = Search::Query::Parser->new(
     dialect => 'Lucy',
     fields  => {
         foo => [qw( foo_lc foo_cs )],
