None taken. I was just trying to be constructive because I felt this 
problem has come up more than once already, but I didn't see any useful 
suggestions in your reply, hence slight frustration. The configure.ac 
that JB suggested kind of sounds right, but testing for the UCS 
completeness of towlower is a bit hard. In this case I feel the towlower 
is a bit overkill since it's only applied to ISO 8859-1 characters in 
the first place.

Since translating uppercase to lowercase (in UCS towlower compatible 
way) in case of latin1 is quite simple, I can prepare a patch that would 
handle them manually without towlower. If someone objects this kind of 
approach, please let me know to avoid useless work.
