 If I issue a command like `cabal install bindings-dsl`, cabal will happily
 install `bindings-DSL` and write `bindings-dsl` to the world file. Then
 when I `cabal install --dry-run world`, I get
 Warning: The following 'world' packages will be ignored because they refer
 packages that cannot be found: bindings-dsl
 This seems to be because of the discrepancies in capitalisation -- the
 world file is case-sensitive, the install command isn't.
