On the other hand, coming from a UNIX environment where case sensitivity is the 
default, it seems odd that we'd intentionally become case-insensitive.

For option 2 do we need to actually update the DB column description?  Or is 
there a way to alter the query to be case-insensitive without altering the 
column itself (using collate maybe)?
