[directory-discuss] Case sensitivity of searches

after just adding an entry for GNU MPC (as "MPC") into the Free software
directory, I naturally looked for the project. Unfortunately, there is
another one, "mpc", that is totally unrelated (so no confusion is possible).

However, the field "search the directory", upon typing
"mpc", finds mpc;
"Mpc", finds mpc;
"MPC", finds MPC.

Could the search be made case insensitive, so that people would not miss
a potentially interesting project?

Also, searches for parts of words could be interesting: "mpf" could return
MPFR and MPFI, for instance.
