For me, I'd simply like the ability to be able to make the ignores
case-insensitive without having to resort to something like
"*.[Oo][Bb][Jj]", which tends to make my ignore line *really* long.
Being on Windows, I don't care whether a file is named test.obj,
test.Obj or test.OBJ, they are all the same.

Note that doesn't mean I think the *default* should be
case-insensitivity should be the default, I realize that not every OS
handles case properly like Windows does (ducking&running), but I would
like to see a more compact syntax if possible, even if it's just a flag
somewhere that says "ignores are case-insensitive".
