I took a quick stab at the former, see the attached patch; is that
what you had in mind?  It would require changes to a lot of ejs
scripts to comply with this change.
Using caseless comparison for every kind of lookup of ejs object
properties sounds like a really bad idea though, and I can't see a way
to do this only for ldb message objects.
Or am I missing something?
