Sorry everyone, but I forgot to write the item about Kpathsea now doing
case-insensitive filename matching in some cases. Since it's the most
incompatible thing that's been done with kpathsea in ages :(, I think we
have to tweak the doc again. Here is what I just wrote (and committed)
in the English ... please update your translations and commit/email me
as before? --thanks, karl.
