I thought actually of a different way to implement this change.

Instead of letting the create method return the case sensitivity flag, I 
have added a new method to the EntryInserter interface.

Anyway that would not be possible to implement without breaking all 
of it.

With the way James took, it is easy to maintain backward compatibility. We
just need to add the old serialize method again.

+1 to do that
