The fl_filename_match() function matches normal text in a
case-insensitive way, 'a' == 'A' etc, and that is fine.

However the characters in a [] set, like "[a-z]", are matched
case-sensitively, which is inconsistent with how normal text is

It is fairly easier to fix the handling of [] sets to match
case-insenstivetly.  I also suggest updating the documentation
of the function to note its general case-insensitivity (as the
current wording says that a character matches "exactly", which
is not really correct).
