--- Comment #1 from Tim Taubert <ttaubert@mozilla.com> ---
We should probably rather normalize algorithm names to uppercase - users might
be very surprised when their algorithm names are converted to lowercase,
contrary to what is written in the spec.

The only problem would be "RSAES-PKCS1-v1_5" which is written with a lowercase
"v" in the spec as well. Normalizing it to uppercase be rather surprising as
well...
