In fact, nicks aren't necessarily case-sensitive right now. It depends on the file system. It'd be nice to convert all nicks to lowercase when saving configuration to avoid confusion.

There's one problem with this: Backward compatibility, and especially what to do when both "Foo" and "foo" accounts exist?

Should just combine this with #23, seems like the best option to me. We'll see how to deal with dupes, it's probably best to search for them by hand before upgrading on big servers and remove one of them.
