HttpMethods.getForKeyCaseInsensitive("POST") gives None, should be Some(HttpMethod(GET))

The reason is that when HttpMethods registers its members it uses upper case keys

private def register(method: HttpMethod): HttpMethod = register(method.value, method)

... but when invoking getForKeyCaseInsensitive under the hood it applies toRootLowerCase on key

My recommendations are either store keys in lower case or override getForKeyCaseInsensitive and replace toRootLowerCase with toUpperCase(Locale.ROOT)

override def getForKeyCaseInsensitive(key: String)(implicit conv: String <:< String) : Option[HttpMethod] =

@liljaylj huh, good observation! I suppose replacing toRootLowerCase with toUpperCase(Locale.ROOT) would be the most unobtrusive change, unless we have reason to believe this method is performance-critical? Would you like to propose the change as a PR?
