Oh, *headdesk*, indeed. Since I'm generating them mostly
automatically, that shouldn't be a problem. Looks weird, but works.

Would it be too evil to have another operator ==i for case insensitive
string glob matching? Or perhaps =i=, to disambiguate it when using
the right-hand side without quotes?
Another option would be regexec(3): FOO==/bar/i. Adding regexes will
add a lot of power, but of course it introduces quite some performance
penalty and shouldn't be used too much. Was there a previous use case
for regexes so far?
