I really like the emacs solution to this dilemma: 

If the user makes the effort to Capitalize, then the user means "match this using Capital letters". Lower case implies case-insensitive match. A subtle issue is whether any Cap forces all case sensitive or just on the one letter.

If we implement such a rule, then we solve your complaint (and the specific example above) and retain the advantage sought by bug 85586.

What do you think?
