The collations we currently support don't do that, unless someone made a
custom one.  However, we might want to support that in the future.

Also, text/varchar comparisons always use strcmp() as a tie-breaker.
Again, this might be something to review at some point.

But you currently have the citext type that would indeed consider 'aa'
and 'AA' equal.  But citext also has a hash function in the hash
operator class that handles that.  So you could look into using that
