+1 from me.

I think case-sensitive filesystem are user unfriendly in general, but
of course they are out there (on unix only as far as I can tell, Mac,
Windows, OS/2, Amiga, etc... all were case-preserving but
case-insensitive).

The point is case-insensitive, case-preserving filesystems are hugely
popular and deserve better support.
