Just curious: Why are function- and macro names case-sensitive?

No real reason.

In the next version of Everything, functions and macros will be case insensitive.
Everything will lookup the function/macro with the correct case, if it doesn't find one, it will do the lookup again with a case-insensitive search.
This will allow you to have macro: and MACRO: do two completely different things (if you have defined both macro and MACRO)
