I agree with you ­ sorry I meant it should be enabled by default, but if
people are already expecting that the entities are case-insensitive we
should allow them to continue to use it in that way.

I think your solution is workable, if you want to create an issue in our bug
tracker and submit a patch and a unit-test for your patch that would be
fantastic and one of the devs will take a look at it and get it integrated.

Thanks Gunther!
