Who says http URLs are case insensitive? RFC 1738 doesn't actually talk
about case sensitivity except for the scheme (http vs HTTP), unless
I missed something. Hostnames are generally case insensitive due to
DNS's insensitivity. Everything else is case sensitive as far as I know,
though the server could consider things insensitivly if it wants to.

  your albums.

 Fry: Cool. Can I borrow the new ones. And a couple of blank tapes?
