I'm not sure why you think this'll be different than any other use of

If your database isn't case-sensitive, then it doesn't matter what case you use.
If your database is case-sensitive, then you'll need to get used to
using the correct case, or nothing'll work.

As far as I know, DBIx::Class doesn't make any effort to try to be
case-insensitive, but if your database is, then DBIx::Class may appear
to be case-insensitive.
