its a pity that mysql's default utf8 collation is case-insensitive by default.

we actually already had some:
http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/node/264150222/history

i don't think its a problem whether the DB case sensitive or not, as
the convention seems to be to use mostly lower case keys. we just have
to be careful to use the same string comparisons in other places, e.g:
hash maps for tags.

cheers,
