I should point out that at no point did I actually want Python to become
completely case insensitive for COM - but I _did_ want the ability to
create case-insensitive namespaces on demand.

So for the record, I would personally remain in the case-sensitive camp,
but would be willing to live in a case-insensitive world if it was
recognised it could benefit - and therefore Python could reach - more
people.  I can't believe it is YANI (yet-another-religious-issue) for so
many people!
