We use svn_config_read to parse the authz which always stores the section names in *lower* case in its internal hash table.

See subversion/libsvn_subr/config.c:make_hash_key().

We need to rev svn_config_read to accept bool case_sensitive_section_parser. Then we can change the behaviour to always case-sensitive approach as against today's case-insensitive approach.
