Problem is, docs are cleverly silent on the issue :)  So for one, it 
would be good if the docs specified it one way or the other at least
in the above cases.  But also in the code, case-fold-search is sometimes
explicitly set before testing regexps and sometimes isn't.  I started
fixing this, then realized that there is no spec for the right behavior.
So I thought I'd check with the list first.
