We consider to use Webware for the reimplementation of an existing web
application. Here, the user names (I think you mean the names which
are used for login?) are case sensitive.
If UserKit wouldn't at least provide an option to use case sensitive
user names this could result in two identical user names for different
persons. This consequence would make UserKit inappropriate for us.
The case insensitivity of roles wouldn't hurt us, as in our current
implementation the names of roles have never been revealed to the
users. However, this may be a problem for other developers.
