OK - back to what I actually meant:

Some parts of the new modules system use 'strequal' in their internal
loops, matching module names in smb.conf with builtin modules and others
brought in from .so files.

I think this should be case sensitive, and when we audit strequal()
users, we might want to change these to strcmp(), not strcasecmp().
