But you just agreed that it doesn't work.

It might be that there are degrees of not-working-ness here, but before
adopting a partial solution I would like to see some reasoning why it
won't make things worse for other people.  I think that what you are
proposing could lead to arbitrarily bad behavior (up to and including
server crashes) depending on what libc's toupper/tolower functions are
coded to do with out-of-range inputs.  Exactly what cases have you
tried, and on what platforms?
