[Snort-devel] Case sensitive fast pattern matches

Dear Snort Community,
I will keep this "short and sweet". For many years I have appreciated the
functionality of the Snort fast pattern matcher. Yet I often wish (read:
strongly desire) that it would be case-sensitive, or at the very least,
have the capability to specify if a fast pattern match should be case
sensitive or not.
A case sensitive match should be more efficient that one that is not and a
lot of times, while I benefit from the overall performance enhancement from
the fast pattern matcher, the engine has to re-evaluate the content match
again because I need the match to be case sensitive so I can't set it as,
"fast_pattern:only". This is very frustrating (hence this email).
