Can you expand on exactly what you mean by the "as long" part?
Meaning that, if we go with #1, we should make sure we are not doing
case-insensitive comparisons in gdb unless it is clearly stated we
should do it (like handling of Windows paths i suppose).
Would you say that we should stop completing "handle sig" to "handle SIG"?
"handle" doesn't accept lowercase signal names, but it could be
argued that the completer is helping the user here.
That sounds like a one-off case where it is useful.
Grepping for strncasecmp doesn't find all that many hits, and several
are in symbol lookup or path handling stuff where they're probably rightly
I'll go through the code to see if there are any other occurrences.
The ones in tracepoint.c do look like of the inconsistent-user-interface sort.
I had never realized we accept $REG etc. in tracepoint actions.
Neither did i. This one looks like it could be dropped.
