The situation is not all that bad. I count only 158 references to
strcasecmp(). So reviewing and fixing those that are wrong seems quite
feasible and would make a good janitorial task.
The rules are as follows:
* For case insensitive comparisons of 'windows strings', a Windows
function must be used (stricmp() or similar).
* For case insensitive comparisons of 'Unix strings', that is of
strings coming from the Unix world such as Unix filenames, then using
strcasecmp() is fine. However, in the Unix world it's not very common
to want to do case insensitive comparisons.
