I have outlined what behaviour I would expect as a user in the
original email I sent to this list.
Windows isn't the only place that this can happen. If you had a
network mounted dir - where svn lived and the method of access was
only case insensitive the same issue would occur on linux :)

By doing nothing you gain nothing. By having a method to say "ok but
lets handle this like this and inform the user" --> via a new method /
api , there is much to be gained. Nothing will be lost.
