URL case during multiple index search

Am I right in assuming that when Swish-E performs a search on multiple indexes 
that when the results are merged, they are done so with case sensitivity?

That is, that the two URLs http://www.foo.com/Bar/ and http://www.foo.com/bar/ 
would be treated as different, and thus return two separate results.

That's the more standards compliant way, isn't it? I recall that URLs are 
normally meant to be case sensitive, so I presume that's what's being done.

So, is there any way to get Swish to ignore case when merging? I'm having 
trouble spidering a large site over which I have no editorial control, where 
the writers have been lazy and specified pages with both cases. I can solve 
the problem with some post-processing, but I figured I'd check first :)
