case handling of package names in "available" and "status" files

I just wanted to let you know that there is a small and insignificant bug in
dpkg/dselect. If I am correct, dpkg/dselect create the /var/lib/dpkg/status
file. There is one package named "Eterm" with a capitol "E". In the "available"
file it appears as "Eterm", yet in the status file it comes up as "eterm".
Dselect also shows the package names as all lowercase. My problem is with this
inconsistency - it broke a home-made script I wrote. Never mind. I'll just
"grep -i" it.

Thanks for the greatest package manager. I like dselect whatever other people
