In general I think this is a good idea.
But I have two and a half questions:
- What is the impact on existing lists which might have case
sensitive names? Would a converter script be necessary?
- What does it mean for MTA configurations? (I'm thinking exim)
AFAIK, the local-part (i.e. listname) of an email address is case
sensitive, though the domain-part is not.
