      There is one important effect of 'ignorecase' on Vim's tags subsystem's
      behaviour, and here it is: when using a sorted tags file and binary
      search to make tags finding faster, the tags file must be sorted
      case-folded (b between A and C) if 'ignorecase' is on, it must be sorted
      on ASCII value (a after Z) if 'ignorecase' is off. If the file uses the
      wrong sort order you must tell Vim not to use binary search.

      The tags file can contain a header line indicating whether it is
      unsorted, ASCII-sorted or casefold-sorted. Of course, if you re-sort the
      file, the flag in that line must be changed.

      See :help 'tagbsearch' for details.

      I'll grant thee random access to my heart,

      And so we two shall all love's lemmas prove
      And in our bound partition never part.
