To make a module body case-sensitive, prefix the module with `#cs':

 (module modtest mzscheme
   (provide foo bar)
   (define foo (lambda () (equal? 'hello 'hello)))
   (define bar (lambda () (equal? 'hello 'Hello)))

While `require' loads a module, it disables case sensitivity --- and
sets all of the other reader parameters to specific values, too.

Forcing reader parameters to a sepcific state helps ensure that the
meaning of a module declaration depends only on its imports, and not
anything else about the environment.

I've added a note and hyperlink to section 5.8 about `#cs'. (I also
added links to `read-case-sensitive' documentation to 5.8.)
