[Chandler-dev] Index ordering and case sensitivity

In looking into bug 5718, I noticed that string comparison for indexing 
is done without ignoring case.

This probably isn't what users expect, but the fix for this isn't 
simple: case-insensitive comparison is locale-sensitive, which would 
indicate that we'd need to reindex when the user changes locales, which 
could be expensive.

Any ideas on how to deal with this problem?
