I understand when it comes to managing the actual files. But this is the
Ignore feature, which is more of a "convenience feature", not a critical
component that maintains the integrity of the filesystem.
I would think most users instinctively expect Ignore to be a greedy match
(insensitive) regardless of their own filesystem.
