to_upper/1 and to_lower/1 are defined in the httpd_util module rather  
than in string.

I invariably end up re-implementing these functions every time I want  
to use them, just because I find it criminally perverse to have the  
words httpd_util:to_upper(Str) in an application which doesn't do  
anything involving the http protocol.
