I certainly should have mentionned that..

Well, I don't think there is any way to have case-insensitivity in general
without a speed penalty wrt. case-sensitiveness.

Well, I wanted to raise a more general issue of case-sensitivity in config files.
I believe that having some directive case-sensitive, and other case-insensitive would
be a _bad_ (certainly confusing thing).

So, even thought we started talking about specifically PerlOptions, I wanted to get a good
idea of how people felt about the rest of our configuration directives.

Makes sense?
