The illiterate in every language, computer or natural, English or
German, would prefer to ignore case, just as they would prefer to ignore
punctuation and grammer. Case sensitivity adds expressiveness to a
language, yet with no real overhead.  Case carries additional
information for the readers of a language, information that is lost and
obscured when case is ignored.
