Right. You would block any additions of files that would violate the
naming rules on another platform.

The key is to not let those files in the repos at all - if they manage
to make it in, then the WC isn't going to be able to do much. There
is no accurate way to determine what FS you are on in any case, so
it's not likely that the WC can do much other than panic. =) --
