My first thought was advising the function as above but it didn't work
when I tried it, so I did look at the code: org-tags-view calls
org-scan-tags which sets case-fold-search to nil unconditionally, hence
the advice failure (I think). But I also tried to set it to t (in a git
branch) and that too did not work for me - I gave up at that point
(however, I didn't try very hard so it is quite conceivable that I
misunderstood the code or did something wrong.)
