The naming scheme can change but this is the list I've gathered from looking at
Boost's string algorithms library (full comparison spreadsheet here
http://goo.gl/Wmotu4).

istartsWith()
iendsWith()
icanFind()
ifind()
ireplaceFirst()
ireplaceSlice()

We already have cmp() and icmp() so maybe leave those two alone and add new
functions to be used for lexicographical sorting.

I've only included variations for the functions we already have here. There
will be a separate issue for the functions in the linked spreadsheet that are
missing entirely (both normal and case-insensitive) in the linked spreadsheet.

These all depend on the implementation of the Unicode Collation Algorithm (UCA)
(see issue #10566).
