Actually NTFS IS CASE sensitive - so you are wrong :)
What isn't case sensitive is the windows apis to get at the files iirc.
So you can have a folder called abc123 and one called ABC123 in the
same directory but via explorer you can only access one at a time :)

What if I happen to have a file called FOO_CONFLICT already?

Erh you already had foo in the repo / local store and you are on
windows - so you know you have to do something :)
This isn't hard :)

Actually that doesn't do what I want or solve the use cases I stated
in the bug report. Perhaps *read* my email again ?

In any case you can see the previous which I forward to the svn dev
