Yes, you can sort case-insensitively in PHP just fine, but you can't
(efficiently) do so in MySQL. Like with the category thing, we'd have to add a
new column to hold the 'normalized' username and sort by that instead. For
English 'normalized' can just be all lowercase, but for other languages you'll
want to sort accented characters in all sorts of interesting ways.
