Tags should not be case-sensitive

I think tags should not be case-sensitive, especially given how easy it is for me to accidentally create new tags without realizing it.

In other words, if I have transactions with tag "MyTag" and then I enter another transaction typing tag "mytag" then I think it should be recognized as the same thing, "MyTag".

Here are some discussions where others made similar/related requests:

For reference, here's another discussion that includes helpful hints for users trying to manage tags:

    I agree. Add my vote.
    I'd like the ability to limit tags to those that already exist, perhaps as
    a preferences option. It would be fine to need to turn the preference off
    in order to create a new tag, and then turn it back on again. Others could
    keep the existing arrangement by not checking that preference.

    Thanks, I also agree with this suggestion from tgilbert666: "I'd like the ability to limit tags to those that already exist, perhaps as a preferences option." My list of tags includes strange items that I must have entered by mistake, never intended to be a tag.
