like Myron, I think that is a usually a bad idea.
Simbad do that and it is difficult to find some stars with the web interface
(you have to wrote a * before).
If you ask with identifier "z Pub" (a Be star B3Vne) Simbad answers with
V* Z Pup (a Mira type star M4e)
If you ask "r Pup" (Be B1.5IIIe) Simbad returns V* R Pup (F9Ia)
If you ask "z Her" (Be Bpshe) Simbad returns V* Z Her (F8V)
In our Be database BeSS it is possible to decide to fold UPPER to LOWER when
only "z Pub" is a Be Stars, but in general case it is not correct.
