Re: [PATCH] Support for case sensitive abbrev expansion

Just some technical comments:

There's no need to add a new field to `struct buffer' for the
`abbrev-case-fold' variable, you can just declare a normal variable
Vabbrev_case_fold using DEFVAR_LISP, and emacs will do the right thing
if a mode makes it buffer-local.  [There are obviously trade-offs, but I
think for something minor like this you shouldn't extend the buffer

The feature that makes it track `case-fold-search' probably isn't useful
-- I expect that in most cases people will want to retain
case-insensitive searching, even in situations where case-sensitive
abbrevs would be appropriate.  I think you should just initialize the
global value to `nil' for compatibility, and leave it to individual
language modes to set a different buffer-local value.
