While we're on the topic, is the GNUnet community still adverse to
optionally case-insensitive keywords?

libExtractor contains the lower_extractor which returns all keywords previously extracted in lower case. So newer GNUnet/Extractor installations automatically insert all new content under lower case keywords, too.

While anyone who deperately wants
to do a case-insensitive search can configure his node to search for all
the possible permutations of a keyword (e.g. GPL, gPL, gpL, etc.) I
think this would be far more efficient if implememnted on the side of
the receiving node (and thus as part of the AFS protocol).

GNUnet doesn't search for keywords but for keyword hashes.
A node that receives a search query for "afcc69d729fbf1d0a2af28ce44a23991" ("GPL") doesn't know that it is supposed to return files that also match "8d36179bbeb961aa7d8d73199f25a9b6" ("gpl").
