it's missing.  It's probably an oversight.  There is no reason not to allow it.

Note that the default for all other casesensitive attributes is 1.

1) should the default for like be the same as the usual default?

2) should we change the usual default from 1 to 0?  (that is, comparisons
are case insensitive unless explicitly stated otherwise?)
