Property names aren't supposed to contain uppercase
characters.  I can swing both ways on which of strcmp()
or strcasecmp() is better, but there seems no reason
to do this differently on each platform.

Let me repeat this isn't an argument against your
patch -- indeed, it is probably better to keep the
status quo as the first merging step; I'm just
pointing out stuff that should be fixed in some
follow up.
