In honor of the beautiful first quarter moon this evening, here's a
free tip o' my hat:

Instead of this listing when you list a directory:


you can have a case-insensitive sort, instead of strict ASCII order:


The first is produced under the default language setting of C_C.C,
while the latter comes from setting LANG=english_us.8859 (or more
conservatively, LC_COLLATE=english_us.8859) in your environment.
