I guess this is why the original Postfix lmtp client downcased
everything.  I remember noticing it at the time, but it didn't
cause me problems, so I didn't think much of it.

When the discussion came up on postfix-users after some folks found
this problematic, it was decided that it was wrong of the lmtp
client to forcibly downcase everything.  Now we run into this fun.  

I wonder, perhaps there could be a switch to the Cyrus lmtp server
to downcase stuff?  Maybe I'm wrong, but it seems like this is logic
more appropriate for the LDA, not the conduit to that LDA.  Thoughts?

What does Sendmail do, anyway?
