Subverison itself is case-sensitive everywhere. You can host a
repository on Windows and have files named FooBar.java & foobar.java
in the repository, and it won't complain. The problem comes when you
*check out* to a case-insensitive system, which you will encounter on
Windows & MacOS (although you can avoid it on OS X if you set things
up right to get a case-sensitive FS).
