I still want another option. I don't like having to type the leading
characters in the "right" case, I once spent a day or so trying to
understand the dabbrev code well enough to add an option that
would allow the search to proceed in a case insensitive fashion, but
would offer me all the different case instances as potential completions.

Unfortunately I got way too lost in the code to ever figure out how
to do that.
