Hmm, are you sure about this? I looked at the code for 1.1.11 and tried a
few things, and I don't think this works. The only two things which can
handle case-insensitive matching are cache_stoplist_pattern and
refresh_pattern. I also tried adding the /i after the term I wanted to
match, and that didn't work at all (it matched on /i just like you'd
expect... :-)

I haven't looked at 1.1.12 or 1.1.13 yet, so that functionality may have
been added in one of those.

There are hooks for case-insensitivity in aclParseRegexList() but there
isn't any way to turn them on shy of editing the source code. If you
don't mind doing that, it's a pretty easy change. In fact, if you want
all url_regex acls to be case-insensitive, just change the 0 in line 634
to 1...
