Ok. The debate was as to whether the column_info($col) stuff itself 
could become case insensitive, which it can't. So long as you're only 
lower casing stuff for the purposes of matching it up (and try a 
case-sensitive match first so name/NAME works on DBDs that support it) 
I'm fine with that.

If the user supplies columns like 'name' and 'NAME' and the DBD just 
returns 'name', I guess we just stuff both of them with that result and 
the user can have his foot shot off if that's the result.

Not sure how this impacts things?
