   Bash has the nocaseglob option, which ignores case on searching for

that way.

It's all fine. He wants case-insensitive matching, which bash can be made
to do, and non-case-preserving completion, which readline does.
   Bash can be made to do?  W/o new code?  I think I mentioned it could
be added via a patch or such, but if it can be done right now w/o a
patch, that's great!  How?
