Why is it desirable to do this? Work has to be done to throw out case
and information is lost with no advantage in db space or server
speed. What is the advantage for caselessness? Does anyone use a
single-case terminal anymore?
ODBC sends things thru as upper case and this was causing problems with the
fact that all of the system tables are in lowercase. Rather than have both
in the system tables, it was decided to lowercase everything. This is also
like Oracle and I believe most of the other big, commercial db systems.
