Thats a great and correct assumption, and Im not against it. But its not
working that way right now.

So why not lower case in build_native_mime_types()? If you lowercase one side
and not the other, and then compare them, it wont match. So currently windows
is not being case-insensitive when looking for existent mimetypes in fd.o mime

Being case-insensitive means .z in windows should accept either *.z or *.Z as
their corresponding native globs.

In general, to achieve the assumption, use lowercase when *reading* from *nix,
and proper (original) case when *writing* to it.

- build_native_mime_types() - lowercase
- freedesktop_mime_type_for_extension() - lowercase
- match_glob - lowercase
- write_freedesktop_mime_type_entry() - original case
- write_freedesktop_association_entry() - original case
