Me, too.  Too tired to have written it, probably.

You're right.  I apologize -- I had looked at the code a few weeks
ago, and thought I saw that the regexps *were* case-sensitive,
even though I thought that was kind of bizarre.  Looking again, I
think I got lost in the middle of the regexp.  Oops.

If I'm wrong about the rest, though, tell me.  I would love to
have a fast machine build packages for me, and if there's
something else I can do to make that happen, please let me know!
