There's one big problem with that approach: it's much much harder to
provide an 'un-ignore' command with such patterns. That's why we haven't
implemented this (yet).

But there are not so many variations anyway. From your above examples, I
seriously doubt that 'foo.LOg' will ever be there. At most there are
three variations (all lowercase, all uppercase, or first letter
uppercase rest lowercase).
And for that, it's not much work to ignore all three manually if/when
they show up.
