I'm not a python expert...is there some way in python to get the real name
of a file or directory on a case-insensitive filesystem? It seems to always
lowercase everything (which the docs indicate it will do in some methods).
abspath, realpath, normcase, etc. do not work.

It might be possible to tear down and then build up the full path with
os.listdir since it does preserve the case...except the drive letter will
still not be accounted for. Assuming the drive letter is always uppercase
might be reasonable...I'm not sure.
