About what, your attitude?

As I said, that is what I do. I only mentioned the second one on the spur
of the moment while I was writing the post. I think it is pretty obvious
that using regular expressions for simple string comparision would be
overkill and make for unnecessarily obfuscated code.
Anyway, what I was really getting at was trying find out if there was
something like C's strcmpi() tucked somewhere in Python; that seems a bit
more sensible than either lower-casing or upper-casing everthing.
