I did ask, no one answered.

I still don't think this matters. If you check in a file of xy├Â.c and the
hook sees it as xyo.c, as long as there isn't a file named xyO.c it will be
allowed. So it doesn't really matter.

Also, I think that it would be better to put this into contrib as is to
quiet the 100's of messages on the users mailing list about case-sensitivity
even if it won't work right in 1% of the cases.
