Your glance must have been very cursory indeed, because we _already_ do
what you suggest. :-)

Unfortunately, it's not enough. Mike Pilato's summing up in the issue is
accurate. And because we want to solve otehr case sensitivity problems
(not the least of which is the famous case-only rename), I think this
issue doesn't really belong in the bite-sized list.
