the binding `nil' with the binding `tags-are-case-insensitive' (I
think they're all let-bindings), and M-x byte-compile-and-load-file
If that works for you, let us know and we can consider the (slightly)
harder problem of arranging that tags are case-insensitive exactly
when they should be (probably a buffer-local and an addition to the
mode; main issue is what do you do with mixed-mode programming, where
a C program calls a FORTRAN subroutine or something like
that?---ignore it, probably...).

To balance this, place some women around the corners of the room.
