I was actually just proposing that the rename be made to work on
Windows.

At eh beginning of this thread it was said:

you can't _directly_ rename "Abc" to "abc".

On windows if you have a file "Abc" and you rename it to "abc" in the
local filesystem it just works. There is no reason to not allow this
as long as something named "file" does not already exist in the working
copy which is impossible on Windows anyway. It seems there is a bug in
Subversion in that it tries to access "abc" -- which on windows
successfully accesses "Abc", and then Subversion gets confused about
the existence of the target name, when it fact it is detecting a bogus
conflict with the source name.

Surely THAT can be easily fixed?
