Exactly. PCRE engine adds overhead and is slower than just case

PLUS the Nginx location directive adds more overhead I'd like to avoid
because of its processing order. I know the exact text of what I want to
match, so = is the best choice. But I can't control the case of what clients

But answers seem to indicate Nginx has no such feature.
