That is also my understanding from the previous discussions,
except also for the case insensitivity.

It's a little foggy in my memory, right now, and I don't have much
time to dig further.  But you have to be a little careful - I don't
think a call to open can be replaced by a call to openp. But what
Daniel probably meant was that we shouldn't limit this solution to
just solib_find.  So yes, probably something in in openp. Or perhaps
a new routine that does DOS-style file matching on Unix hosts that
openp and solib_find could call.
