I disagree. That solve a symptom, not the problem.

As of rfc3522 a localpart *may* be used case sensitive or not.
I suggest a switch "my_local_parts_are_casesensitive = yes/no"
or "my_local_parts_are_caseINsensitive = no/yes"
The name and default must be well selected and not break existing behaviour.

I think that's more transparent then changing an mostly unvisible setting.
