My code sorts on a case-insensitive basis, since email addresses
AFAIK are case-insensitive.  It is merely a matter of seeing certain
addresses catch my eye again and again on my reports.

There seems to be a trend to, in both ports and documentation, to
canonicalize the style of our email addresses as  I had
even thought such a thing might be controversial; I thought it was
"just the way we did things."

I will avoid all such commits in the future -- unless someone decides
to define a policy.  Feel free to back this change out if you wish.
