Unfortunately there is not.  I intend to work on that, but currently
I'm very busy so I will probably not get around to that for quite some

The problem is that intarweb ought to be case preserving to cope with
broken software like this, but still be case insensitive when comparing
cookies.  Possibly the latter can be handled in individual modules
which use intarweb, like http-client.
