I read that you want to change the Roslyn compiler to support case insensitive dialects.
How necessary is it to have this feature?

Isn't it easier to:
1. start with case sensitive implementation
2. wait for what features are requested:
2.a. a tool to transform old case insensitive code
2.b. if it is a persistent request: build case insensitivity.

In a short time I learned to appreciate the c# style, but have to support old converted code.

I personally would wish for the tool. It is on our roadmap to do so for our Vulcan.NET code.

OoooO,

Case insensitivity is VERY important if we want to be compatible with the existing xBase dialects.
And without compatibility there is no need for this project at all.
It is not the most complex task we have to do, so don't worry about the time that it will take.
Nikos is already working on it and things look very promising.

I understand.
Will you make it possible to switch to case sensitive mode, like one can currently in Vulcan?
