I can see your point in having a case sensitive search but I mainly use
this to look for things I'm not sure about... So at this time I think I
prefer case insensitive. But perhaps this should be put in ipythonrc as
an option since this is certainly a matter of taste. But perhaps that
work should be left for the branch.
