Just to sketch how I would try to solve this: Write an extension to the
appropriate hook (see
http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:MediaWiki_hooks). When a page is
requested, look up if a page with that title (case insensitive) exists.
If yes, perform an external (HTTP) or internal redirect (a matter of
taste, I guess) to the page with the requested title in its canonical
form. If no, proceed as usual.
