Making svn:keywords fully case-insensitive

kfogel wished that there was a concise proposal not depending on previous
context, so here it is :-)

Change:

Make the contents of svn:keyworks fully case-insensitive.

Objection raised by John Peacock (paraphrased):

Keywords are case-sensistive in the working file, they should be so in
svn:keywords too. We can't case-sensitivize the ones that are insensitive
now, for compatibility, but don't spread the problem, and let's make them
all case-sensitive when we reach 2.0.

My response:

I agree full case-sensitivity would be nicer. But, I think making
svn:keywords fully case-insensitive now is a step towards consistency, and
doesn't in any way prohibit stricter canonicalization when we reach 2.0.

Max.
