For example for plain text, one might want to treat words like "Question" and "question" as exact matches, which will make the completion widget close itself when it shows one of them and the user types the other. This is the current behavior for the word completion in KWrite / Kate.

If the user typed "m_var" but the variable is actually called "m_Var", then the completion widget should not hide itself, since it might still be useful to replace the typed text with the completion item that has different case.
  please put that information into the commit message - I think it's valuable to have
  overall, I think I'm in favor of getting this in - but I'd like to get input from others. @brauch , @kfunk, @apol what do you have to say to this?

For example, if both settings are case-insensitive at first and both should be changed to case-sensitive, then the exact-match-sensitivity must be changed before the match-sensitivity. Alternatively, one could make a single setter function that changes both properties.

either that, or handle it gracefully (with a warning?) wherever it's used?
