However it's a very hard to get it right. In English "i" and "I"
are the same letter in different cases, in Turkish "i" and "I" are
different letters. What is the "correct" response when determining
whether "i" and "I" match?

As far as I can see that script uses case conversion rules provided by
perl. Are perl's rules the same as those used by OS/X? Are perl's
rules the same as those used by Windows? Do OS/X and Windows use the
same rules as each other? Does OS/X, or Windows, use the same rules
on all filesystems?

I've never used the script but I assume it works for the common cases,
but I'd be surprised if it works in all cases.
